Handmade by the Following Members of Cooperative Tiglmamin
Hayat was born in 1985, she is married and has two children. Hayat studied in Khenifra and then her family relocated to Agadir for her parents work. While in Agadir her studies stopped because she struggled with the local dialect that was different from her own. Growing up she was exposed to weaving as those in her family were weavers but she didn’t want anything to do with it. Hayat describes how time went on and her idea of weaving changed. Over the years she taught herself how to make rugs and pillowcases, she describes having different ideas and putting them into her work. Hayat joined the cooperative as a way to help her family.

This rug varies from one region to another according to color, decoration and production method. Made of natural wool this rug is quite versatile, in the winter the pile side is placed up to keep things warmer and in the summer the pile side is placed face down to keep things cooler. Each knot is individually tied by hand making it a true feat of craftsmanship.
