This is a beautiful Old Somalian Finger Woven Decorative Straw Mat called a Kebdo, which is Woven from Cotton and Fiber. Inside a Somalian home ropes and thick branches are covered with kabad (hand-woven mats). Weaving by hand is a traditional Somali skill. These weaving's celebrates the culture and the ancient craft of women living in the countryside of Somalia. This weaving known as kabads (weavings) are traditionally used to decorate and insulate a home and as well as mats for sleeping and praying. The process of weaving begins with separating a burlap rice sack strand by strand, twisting 5 or 6 of these at a time and weaving them into 6-inch sections. These sections are then submerged in dye. After they are rinsed and dried, the weaving begins - all by hand, on their laps, using no tools and no frame. Colorful yarn, old dresses torn into strips, and beads can be woven into the kabad. This old piece of Somalian culture would be a wonderful addition to your home or collection.
