Handmade by the Following Members of Association Zaouia
Fatema is a native of Sidi Yahya Ou Youssef. She has two sons and a daughter. Before getting married she moved with her sister to another village for a few months, where she learned how to weave from other young women. When she moved back to her village, to start her own family, she continued to weave to decorate her home and make warm clothes for her kids. She makes Handira rugs, which the women of Zaouia are known for. This is Fatema’s first time weaving for a commercial purpose. She decided to join the association in 2012, when she heard about Anou and the opportunity it gave the local weavers in her village. With almost no income at all, Fatema has a hard time paying for her diabetes medicine. She hopes that her weaving skills will allow her to comfortably pay for her medicine, as well as get her own place where she can live with her husband and kids.
Fatima was born in Sidi Yahya Ou Youssef. She was very young when she got married and is now divorced. She never went to school, but feels lucky to have joined the association in 2012, where the other women taught her how to properly set up a loom. They also taught her how to do many designs for rugs. She is the only one who supports her family, after her father's death. She spends her income taking care of her mother and brother. She enjoys traveling and specifically likes the city of Khenifra due to its warm weather.
