Fatima was born in 1956, she is a widow with six children, four boys and two girls. Fatima learned the art of weaving at home from her mother. After she married she learned how to make a special type of hanbel known as the “hasera.” The hasera is made using dried palm leaves that are woven with wool into a truly unique rug, this is very difficult work. She decided to join the cooperative because her children are older and she wants the work. Fatima hopes to share a piece of her culture with the world.
