Making a carpet is not only work but it's also a chance for ladies to go back and forth in conversations and know what's going on in the village. Making a carpet seems very complex! What are the steps involved? First is the creative process, as the designs and motifs on the carpets are purely from the imagination of the woman, often symbolic of how she feels on that particular day or representing tribal and cultural meanings like fertility and prosperity.
Some rugs also reflect the surrounding landscape of that region such as desert or the Atlas mountains. As for making the rugs, there are many steps involved including:. What makes the project sustainable and lasting for future generations? Why is it so important to the community? Back in the days when a woman would finish a carpet, her spouse would take that carpet to the souk, either in the village or in big cities such as Marrakech or Fes to sell it in bigger carpet market at an organized auction.

When the Umayyad dynasty was overthrown in , a grandson of Caliph Hisham , Abd ar-Rahman , escaped to north Africa. A persistent tradition states that this is because his mother was Berber. As the governor Ibn Habib was looking for him, he then fled to the more powerful Zanata Berber confederacy, who were enemies of Ibn Habib. Since the Zanata had been part of the initial invasion force of al-Andalus, and were still present in the Iberian peninsula, this gave Abd ar-Rahman a base of support in al-Andalus. After Abd ar-Rahman crossed to Spain in , he declared himself the legitimate Umayyad ruler of al-Andalus.
The governor, Yusuf , refused to submit. After losing an initial battle near Cordoba,  Yusuf fled to Merida , where he raised a large Berber army. With this army, Yusuf marched on Seville, but was defeated by forces loyal to Abd ar-Rahman. Yusuf fled to Toledo, and was either killed on the way, or after reaching Toledo.
All these family members of Yusuf, members of the Fihri tribe, were very effective at obtaining support from Berbers in their revolts against the Umayyad regime. Berbers provided much of Yusuf 's support in fighting against Abd ar-Rahman. In Zanata Berbers were involved in a Yemeni revolt in the area of Seville.

In a Berber garrison in Coria declared allegiance to Shaqya, but Abd ar-Rahman retook the town and chased the Berbers into the mountains. In Shaqya resisted sieges to his two main fortresses at Santaver and Shebat'ran near Toledo. In Shaqya was betrayed and killed by his own followers, who sent his head to Abd ar-Rahman. Roger Collins notes that both modern historians and ancient Arab authors have had a tendency to portray Shaqya as a fanatic followed by credulous fanatics, and to argue that he was either self-deluded or fraudulent in his claim of Fatimid descent.
He also compares these leaders to pre-Islamic leaders Kahina and Kosayla. In , Hisham succeeded Abd ar-Rahman as emir, but his brother Sulayman revolted. Sulayman fled to the Berber garrison of Valencia, where he held out for two years.
