Aicha Meskour is one of the first women who joined Numedia Tabudrart Coop. She
was born in 1949 and grew up in the village of Iskatafen. There she lived with her mother,
who taught Aicha to love weaving and make several different types of rugs. Aicha married in
2000 and lives with her husband after her only daughter has married and has a family of
her own. Joining the coop enables Aicha to reach different parts of the world thanks to the
rugs she can make with her own hands.
