Weaving woollen blankets is certainly one of the oldest traditional arts of the region. Within this workshop, where continuous training takes place, a cooperative of weavers is responsible for making this tradition survive. The decorative motifs of these blankets are like an ornamental grammar affiliated to the ancient Berber tradition and that we also find stamped on archaeological materials.

Within the space of the workshop itself there are examples of ancient instruments linked to the activity of wool and linen as well as an exhibition of materials made in the workshop and in the settlements found in the district’s mountainous areas.
