Handmade by the Following Members of Association Tithrite
Itto was born in a small village outside of Ait Hamza and moved to the village when she married her husband at the age of 19. She and her husband have three children. Her oldest son is almost finished with high school and is one of the best students in her class. Itto did not study in school but is a regular at the association’s literacy class. Her sole source of income is through the sales of her rugs and hopes that after the needs of her family are met she can save a little money to travel to her favorite Moroccan city of Agadir.
Zahra started weaving when she was eight years old. Her female neighbour taught her how to weave. She never went to school and she used to work for some rich families in order to support her own family. Her parents died and then she lived with her brother and his wife. Now that she's a member of Tithrite Association, she no longer feels like she's a burden to her brother. She hopes to help her poor community because she knows how it feels. She likes to weave alot and she thinks that it always feels good to earn money from what she likes to do.

Pile knot rugs, or zrbya rugs in Ait Hamza, are plush warm rugs, and are one of the most popular carpets that the association weaves. The designs and color reflect the culture and nature that define Ait Hamza. In many Tazrbit carpets that the association produces, letters from the Tifinagh alphabet (Berber language) can be found within the designs as well.
