"Weaving is the women’s activity which

carries the greatest symbolic importance, signifying

both the prosperity of a house whose flocks have produced

sufficient wool to mount the loom, and the skill and

application of the women in it ....” the loom is usually found in

the most important room of the house ....... “The dominance of the 

central room thus signifies the dominance of women within

the household.”

Woman and children at the loom, High Atlas, 2001
