Khadija Ait Chakr
Mina was born in 1988 in douar Askour, like many girls of the region she wasn’t able to pursue her studies after primary school because the closest middle school was 10km away. She then learned weaving from her mother and later married a man of the region. Mina joined the cooperative in order to financially help her family in addition to her work in the fields. She hopes that their cooperative will do better than it is doing now and will be successful enough to enable the weavers to only focus on their craft.
Khadija was born in 1969 in the region of Ajoukak. She married a man who due to health complication is unable to work. To support him and their kids she works multiple jobs cleaning hotels, working in the fields, and occasionally selling her handwoven rugs. She moved to Ourika after her niece (the cooperative’s president) convinced her to join the cooperative to have a better chance to live off her weaving skills. Khadija specializes in Boucherouite and she hopes that her work with the cooperative will be the first step to a better life for her and her family.

Boucherouite rugs are another type of rugs used to decorate houses. They were originally made and used by people who couldn’t afford wool and would instead use old clothes and rags to weave their rugs. Now they offer bright and warm accents to any space.
