Description Berber women from the island of Djerba, Tunisia whose husbands insisted they not be identified, spend their afternoons spinning wool to sell at market. Although most islanders live in brick and concrete houses, a low, domelike structure is built in the courtyard using broken pottery from the renowned Djerba pottery industry and bark from palm trees. Men are barred from entering this private space where women gather to drink tea and socialize while spinning. The spindle is dropped down into a specially built pit so that it can rise and fall like a yo-yo without requiring the spinner to keep her arms continually raised.
