Fatima Mtous i
Khadija Ait Benamo
Fatima Mtous is from the village of Tadula Zanfi. She is the mother of two boys and one girl. She learned how to weave from her mom. Today she is taking literacy courses at a small qsuaranic school in the village. She has been weaving all her life. When she was younger, her father would often show off her rugs to her friends and eventually she got more and more recognition. At first, they would become gifts to people on special occasions and then she eventually showed them at local craft fairs. Because of this, she is one of the more traveled women of the village and has traveled to Marrakech, Agadir, Khemissit, and other places.
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.
Khadija was born in a village near the city of Ouarzazate and moved to the village of Tadula Zanfi when she married. She and her husband have nine children, the oldest son is currently attending university in Agadir. She learned how to weave from her aunt at a young age and she heard about the association forming in her village, she decided to join believing it would be the right place to develop her skills and ideas in textiles. Also, she hoped that the association would be able to provide her much more income. With more income in the future, Khadija hopes to improve her current house and perhaps one day complete a hajj to Mecca.

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.
