Handmade by the Following Members of Cooperative Tawnza
Aicha was born in 1960 in the village of Ait Hamza where she has lived her whole life, never having the opportunity to attend school. She is married and is the mother of five children. As a young girl she learned how to weave from her mother. At the time of her youth, she was expected to take care of household chores and join the artisan community. Like the other members of the coop, she hopes that the coop grows and develops and is able to sell its products throughout global markets.
Aicha was born in 1966 in the valley of Ait Binamar in the village of Enjil. She is married and moved with her husband to Ait Hamza, and is the mother of five children. Aicha never had the opportunity to attend school, and learned how to weave from her mother since the time that she was a little girl. All of the women of her village were expected to weave and learn household duties rather than attend school. Aicha is one of the founders of the Tawnza Cooperative, and hopes that it continues to grow and develop. She is looking forward to when the women will be able to collaborate on new and unique design while the larger artisan market learns about the traditional designs of this province through the cooperative's work. She looks forward to being able to earn a fair, sustainable autonomous income.
