Born in 1992, Ghizlane had to walk a big distance to get to her high school, which caused her to drop out in her last year. Still single, she thought of starting a cooperative with other women, she got some help from Cooperative Tifawine, she picked up a few things from them like The Haouizi Rug. Still facing a problem in marketing their own products, Ghizlane and the other women keep a positive outlook and hope to display their products in both national and international exhibitions.
Beni Ourain rugs are known to be found in the north east of Morocco. But as tribal affiliation has declined and the more easily it is for people to move across the country, Beni Ourain rugs have now proliferated across the country while taking on unique characteristics of the village it was made.
