Fatima was born in 1982 in Ait Hakim, is married to a man from the village and is the mother of two boys. Fatima never had the opportunity to attend school because her father did not allow it, but rather help her mother with household duties, teaching that it was only boys who could go to school not girls. Fatima feels unlucky that she never had this opportunity to gain an education. She wants to be a part of the coop so that she can earn a sustainable income to support her children's education. Fatima learned how to weave from her mother, when she was a young girl, learning how to weave all types of rugs. She hopes that she can improve her products and that one day they will be known in worldwide markets.
This handwoven traditional black and white rug is famous in the Ait Bouguemez region. Thick and warm in feel, the traditional symbols and geometric patterns can add a Berber Moroccan flair to any space.
