Handmade by the Following Members of Association Timouzounin
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.
Amina was born in the 80’s and attended school until the sixth grade. It was common then not to complete high school for a variety of reasons. So after she left school, she spent a lot of time with her neighbors while they wove, and she eventually learned how to weave her self. She never wove at home since she didn’t have the materials, so she spent more time with her neighbors. Since then, she has gained additional skills from the association which she applies to her craft. She hopes that she can learn how to sew in the future and develop workshops that will teach weaving and textile development to other women in the area around her village.

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.
