Handmade by the Following Members of Association Timouzounin
Khadija is a Tadula Zanfi native and was born in the village in the early 1980’s. Khadija is married with four children. While she never attended school, Khadija is currently enrolled in her association’s literacy classes. She learned how to weave from her mom and her sister and specializes in pile knot rugs. She works at the association only in her free time as there currently isn’t enough work yet. However, she hopes that in the future, the association will improve and be able to provide her and her fellow weavers with a better life filled with more work opportunities.
Zineb is a Tadula Zanfi native and was born in the late 1980’s. Zineb attended school until the sixth grade as it was not commonly encouraged to finish more years of school at the time of her youth. She learned how to weave from her relatives and now specializes in flatweave or hanbel rugs. She hopes that one day her association becomes well known and is able to improve the lives of the women within it.
Hasna was born in the 1970’s. When she was younger, she moved to Tadula Zanfi because her dad found work in the local area as a miner. Her oldest son and daughter are both enrolled in high school and her younger daughter is still in elementary school. Hasna joined the association when it was first established and has loved working within it ever since, even though it only produces a small amount of income. She hopes that the sales can eventually improve so she can earn enough money to cover all the costs of putting her children through school.
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.
