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.
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.
