Handmade by the Following Members of Imelghas Women's Cooperative
Malika is an Imghlaus village native and has worked in the cooperative since the day it was founded. She specializes in hanbal carpets and helps with the day-to-day operations of the cooperative. She hopes with the sales of her carpet she'll be able to make enough and take a vacation to a famous Moroccan city!
Fatima was born in Imghlaus and has lived in the village her entire life. Fatima is one the cooperative's members who has never married and considers the members of the cooperative as her family. She learned how to weave when she was child and has since become an expert weaving hanbal carpets. When she is not working at the cooperative, she can be found working in the fields or tending her cows.
Fatima has only recently settled in the village of Imghlaus. Her husband was a soldier in the army and as a result, they lived in different places throughout Morocco. They currently have six children and are expecting grandchildren soon. Fatima has been a member of the cooperative since it began and hopes that it continues growing!

Beni Ourain rugs are known for being made in the north east of Morocco, not in the Ait Bougamez Valley. However, the heritage of many women in Imelghas is linked to the Beni Ourain tribe, through marriage for example, and is is why you'll see many Beni Ourain and Beni Ourain style rugs made by Cooperative of Imelghaus.
