Handmade by the Following Members of Cooperative Tifawin
Khadija Ait Chakr
Aica Ait Zawit
Born in 1977 in Azrou, Mina Achtouk is married to a mason. Together they have two sons in primary school. It was very important for Mina that her sons attend school because she didn’t get that chance growing up in poverty. Instead, she learned how to weave from the women in her family. When she got married she used her skills and sold her handwoven rug to finance her sons’s education. Mina specializes in boucherouite. When the cooperative Tifawin opened its doors in 2014, she joined it so she could gain control over her own income and work with and learn from other weavers.
Khadija was born in 1969 in the region of Ajoukak. She married a man who due to health complication is unable to work. To support him and their kids she works multiple jobs cleaning hotels, working in the fields, and occasionally selling her handwoven rugs. She moved to Ourika after her niece (the cooperative’s president) convinced her to join the cooperative to have a better chance to live off her weaving skills. Khadija specializes in Boucherouite and she hopes that her work with the cooperative will be the first step to a better life for her and her family.
Aicha was born in 1987 in Sti Fadma region. She is married with 4 kids. Aicha is an expert in rug weaving. She learned from her neighbor when she was 30 years old. Aicha couldn’t continue her studies after fifth grade because she didn’t want to. She learned this craft in order to earn money to support her husband and family. Aicha joined the Tifawin Cooperative in 2020.
