Our World: Carpets

All homes in Jeddah that I have visited have flooring that is completely tiled throughout.  Most bathroomsm and sometimes even the kitchens, also are completely tiled not only on the floor but up the walls as well.  Therefore area carpets are a very popular commodity in this country.  These carpets are from the Turkish-Afghani Souk in the old part of Jeddah.  CLICK HERE FOR A MAP to this souk where you can find baskets, carpets, furniture, clothing, handicrafts,jewelry, and many other traditional handicrafts.

Be sure to visit OUR WORLD TUESDAY, where family-friendly bloggers share a unique glimpse into what life is like all around our ever-amazing planet.

I do like carpets like this but I have never been able to afford any in the US.
