The people of the desert, or Badia, the Bedouin are the nomadic sheep, goat and camel herders of Arabia. The Bedouins of the central Syrian Desert weave colorful tent trappings and sturdy ground coverings. Their black goat hair tents are woven in Damascus, Idlib and Hama and pieced together with brightly colored bands. Tent furnishings may be woven of wool, cotton, goat hair or camels hair or any combination thereof. Wool tufts in bright colors adorn many pieces, human hair is sometimes incorporated into the weaving and human figures are sometimes depicted.
