Handmade by the Following Members of Cooperative Nahda
Meriam is married and is the mother of one daughter. She was born in Ait Aziz and learned weaving from her mother as a younger girl. Meriam has never had the opportunity to attend school, and has been selling carpets in the weekly marketplace for many years. Every time she sells a carpet at the market place, she has to sell it at an incredibly low price, one equal to 5 dirhams or 50 cents a day in order to compete with other carpet sellers. Because of these low prices, she stopped weaving, feeling frustrated. She is a fantastic weaver in the traditional red carpets with black and white motifs, and now she has started weaving again as a member of the coop, hoping to increase her living standards through fair pay.

Despite its modern chic appeal, the Boucharef carpet is woven into traditional Atlas Mountain culture. When poorer families were low in supplies during a cold winter, they washed and tore up old clothing to furnish their homes. Fortunately today, the carpet carries on in tradition rather than in necessity.
