Video on 'elchbika alger' on YouTube

Just found this wonderful video on what appears to be Chebka lace,, 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.
