Grinding dye using traditional tools
Interior view of large grinding wheel which is used to ground varieties of natural products into a fine mixture used for making natural dyes for carpets and other products. A camel used to pull the wheel, but now the process is powered by electricity. There is a bright beam of light coming from the ceiling, somewhat reminiscent of a hamam (Turkish bath house).
