Dahlal Internationale

Wow! I just saw this tonight! I'm going there next weekend while we're in St Louis to buy things and I'd love to get at least the hip scarf. Assuit is a material made in Egypt on the Upper Nile in a small town by little old ladies. It is a cotton net fabric with German silver threads woven into a pattern and beaten flat. I want to take a seminar on a form of folkloric dance called Raqs al Assaya, a cane dance, in Lawrence in August and the scarf would be a nice compliment to it. I'll be picking up a couple of other things while I'm there, too; a set of cymbals and something else nice. Posted by Picasa
