Born in 1989 in Beni Tadjite. Maimouna relocated to Talsint when she married her husband. Maimouna studied until the sixth grade and then married young. Maimouna has one daughter. She learned to make baskets and to weave at home when she was young. Maimouna would some day like to finish her studies and hopes that her daughter will do so and not marry young. With the profits from her basket sales Maimouna purchases items for her daughter and things for the home. She likes that her work not only preserves the artisan traditions of her region and culture but that it enables her to improve her life.
A traditional Moroccan basket known as a "tbaq." This basket is handmade using a local dried grass that is wound with colorful wool thread into one-of-a-kind designs. Originally these baskets were used for bread making but nowadays they can be functional or decorative.
