Rug
The cobbled streets of the town centre are full of crafts shops showing typical wares from Erice, including rugs, the making of which, on ancient looms, requires several days work: through a complex system of weaving, of manual and pedal work, the pattern becomes interlocked in the warp, producing the characteristic geometric brightly coloured designs. Once, the rugs were created by women in their spare time, using remnants and leftover material.
