Hara was born in Ixf N'Ighir in 1954 and is married to a man from the local area. She is the mother of eight and has never been able to attend school because there was no school nearby to her childhood home. She learned the craft of weaving from her mother at a young age, specializing in rugs. She joined the cooperative to encourage the women to stay together and not leave the village. She hopes that the cooperative continues to develop and improve the living standards of those in the village.

This simple plush rug can add warmth and a traditional Moroccan feel to any room.
