Egyptian Wool Tapestries   

      From the collection of Marla Mallett

The imagery in Egyptian village tapestries ranges from sophisticated to charmingly naive. The pieces remaining below were woven by children in the Wissa Wassef workshop in Harrania.  For photos of weavers and some background on this important experiment in creativity, check out our page on the Wissa Wassef studio.  Be sure to also look at the page of stunning  Cotton Miniature Tapestries
