Video on 'elchbika alger' on YouTube

Just found this wonderful video on what appears to be Chebka lace, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OrSrhmiWmFw, but from Algeria. They call it Elchbika Alger, and beautifully represents the whole line of Tunisian, Moroccan, etc., variations of this knotted needlelace. It illustrates the use of a pillow as well as paper patterns held in the hand. Hope you speak Arabic.
