Rqia Brka is originally from Tadula Zanfi. While Rqia only finished two years of school, she has been determined to learn and is now enrolled in her association’s literacy class. She learned how to weave from her mom and now continues to weave in the association in her free time. She hopes that one day their sales will improve and that she will be able to make a living from her skills.
The designs made by the association are rooted in the long weaving history of the region. Many of these rugs, known as Taznakht rugs, are made distinct by bright reds and yellows, colors that represent the landscape in which the rugs were made. These bohemian style rugs have a contemporary feel while incorporating traditional Moroccan designs.
