Handmade by the Following Members of Cooperative M'Zinda De Tissage
Naima was born in the far south city of Dakhal and moved to M'Zinda after marrying her husband, who works in agriculture. She joined the cooperative since the beginning as a means to support her family and pay for her son's tutoring classes. She hopes that with increased income she can provided her son with a good education and job for her son.
Khadija was born in Misghra, which is near by in the Khemisate region of Morocco. Khadija is the president of the cooperative. She is raising her three children independently after her husband passed away.
Saida was born in Marrakech, is married and now lives in Youssaofia with her husband's family. She is the mother of two, one who works in an aluminum plant, and another who is a small shop owner. Her husband is retired, and so she specializes in rugs for the cooperative. She learned the craft of weaving from her mother when she was young, and has been a member of the cooperative since its inception. Saida loves the creative aspects of weaving and enjoys coming up with new designs. She hopes in the future to be able to design and create new and unique carpets. Saida says that she loves to talk with foreigners and change their preconceived notions about Morocco, which she feels benefits her community. Saida hopes that she will eventually be able to earn a fixed salary and that the cooperative continues to grow and flourish.
