Fatima was born in Ait Bouli in 1983 and is married. She attended school through the 5th grade, but left in order to get married at a young age. Her mother taught her how to weave as a girl and she joined the cooperative to help her husband financially because he is ill and unable to earn sustainable income. Fatima hopes that the cooperative continues to improve and that her skills in weaving can continue to grow.
These decorative blankets are traditionally made for weddings, often decorated with intricate patterns. The playful designs and warm white can add a Moroccan accent to any space as a blanket or throw. Wedding blankets made in the Ait Bouguemez valley are unique to the valley and are not made elsewhere.
