The Sinai weaving process is actually quite clever because it utilizes the factories waste and the scraps take up more space in the weave (as opposed to regular thread weaving), so it is much faster to make than a regular carpet. In this close-up of the wall carpet you can see how much space the fabric scraps take up as opposed to the threads.

The patterns suggested are taken from the local desert wildlife. In the carpet pattern we see an ibex, a common animal indigenous to the area.

A new take on the traditional "Sinai carpet" which is woven by Bedouin women out of fabric scraps obtained from textile factories.

By using advance planning and design I was able to create an intricate pattern that elevated the level of this product.

This also opened up the additional market of wall carpets, increasing the potential of this type of carpet in terms of revenue.

The manufacturing of this product is still as low cost and clever as before, but with a designers eye to guide the combination of fabrics and stencils to create the much more elaborate patterns it is now an impressive piece of product-art.
