editorial

The editorial section shows a collection of articles that I wrote over the years for various magazines +/or museums publications (of which I kept the right to re-publish them digitally). Furthermore there is a list of links to articles that I find helpful or interesting to deepen the understanding for the traditional + contemporary weaving culture in north Africa in general + the Moroccan Berber rugs + textiles in particular.
