Handmade by the Following Members of Association Timouzounin
Latifa Inzik is a Tadula Zanfi native. She is divorced and has a boy and daughter who are both studying in primary school. She and a group of women in her village decided to form the association in order to showcase their work. Unfortunately, the association hasn’t produced as many sales as they had hoped since they haven’t been able to travel to many shows. Today, Latifa lives at home with her parents and any income she generates from her sales she invests in her children. With increased sales she would like to build a home for her and her children and provide them with the means to travel.
Ijja was born in Teznacht and moved to Teduit ZanFi because that is where her husband's family lived. She is the mother to six children, all of whom are still in school. Four of them live in Agadir, leaving the village to look for a job. Ijja lives with two of her children, one of whom is suffering from mental illness. There is no way to get treatment for her, though the other four children have chipped in to try and cover medical expenses. Now, she is still in the process of looking for money to be able to pay for treatment for her sick son. Ijja used to just make rugs by herself, but it is was not enough to support her son and herself. Then, one person from the association encouraged her to join as a member. The association donated some livestock and weaving materials to her and her family and have allowed her to earn more income. She hopes that her products will sell well.
Khadija Kutani is the president of the association. She hopes that through her work she will be able to improve the lives of the association’s members and raise the standards of her association's work so it can compete on national and international markets. Through the income the association creates, she hopes that she will be able to teach and educate a whole new generation of girls from her village.
Fatima is from Teduit ZanFi, is married to, and is the mother of three. She is 50 years old. Fatima has never had the opportunity ti attend school, but is now working to improve her literacy skills through classes taught by the association. Fatima learned the craft of weaving from her mother. Because she was married to a man from a different village and lived there for many years, she often would go back and forth between her and her husband's village. After her husband passed away she has been the sole breadwinner for herself and her children. Fatima specializes in carpets, and has been a member of the cooperative since its inception.

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.
Moroccan artisans are paid a meagre 4% of an average sale online or in local markets. But with your help we can change that!
