Hasna is the mother of two small children and has been weaving all of her life. She learned how to weave from her aunt when she was very young. She studied until the sixth grade and had to stop studying after that. In lieu of the school, Hasna has been able to continue developing her weaving skills at the association. Though she earns little from her weaving, she hopes that through the association there will be greater global demand for her village’s rugs!
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.
Moroccan artisans are paid a meagre 4% of an average sale online or in local markets.
But with your help we can change that!
Every product on Anou is priced by artisans themselves and Anou shows
exactly where your money goes. When buying handmade Moroccan crafts always ask for pricing breakdowns from sellers.
