This tradition is a strong part of communal life. The weaving is one of the last traces of the unique Bedouin heritage, now that the people no longer lead a nomadic life. Today, the young girls in the community see the weaving and learn from their mothers and grandmothers. On Bedouin Heritage Day (held every year in May-June) schools bring their students to see our handiwork, and many visitors come to Lakiya.
The weaving is in daily use not only because we are proud of our culture, but also because it is the main source of income for the 70 families. Older women and abandoned wives begin to regain their self-respect through this employment.
