Handmade by the Following Members of Association Timouzounin
Ijja was born in Teznacht and moved to Teduit ZanFi because that is where her husband's family lived. She is the mother to six children, all of whom are still in school. Four of them live in Agadir, leaving the village to look for a job. Ijja lives with two of her children, one of whom is suffering from mental illness. There is no way to get treatment for her, though the other four children have chipped in to try and cover medical expenses. Now, she is still in the process of looking for money to be able to pay for treatment for her sick son. Ijja used to just make rugs by herself, but it is was not enough to support her son and herself. Then, one person from the association encouraged her to join as a member. The association donated some livestock and weaving materials to her and her family and have allowed her to earn more income. She hopes that her products will sell well.
Aziza Kobrachine is from Tadula Zanfi and attended school until the fourth grade. She learned how to weave from her sister and then finished a training where she learned more about textile making and natural dyes. Aziza took part in establishing the association, which was one of the first in the immediate area. Her goals with it were to create a place where women could work together and find a way to generate income through their own business without having to resort to their families.
Khadija Kutani is the president of the association. She hopes that through her work she will be able to improve the lives of the association’s members and raise the standards of her association's work so it can compete on national and international markets. Through the income the association creates, she hopes that she will be able to teach and educate a whole new generation of girls from her village.
Rashida was born in Teduit in 1978 and has been able to attend school through the 6th grade. After she left school, she learned the craft of weaving from her mother and was able to earn a small amount of income, which she could spend on herself. She hopes that good things come to the association and that it continues to grow and flourish.

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.
