Cooperative Atma is most well known for their detailed bohemian style hanbel rugs. These rugs can only be found in the surrounding area of Ait Hamza and carry significant cultural importance. In the past, the carpets were only made for nobility and now serve almost as a currency amongst the women in the village. Many of the motifs found in the hanbal are inspired by Ait Hamza’s local culture and surrounding environment. The women unanimously agree that they are the hardest type of rug to make because it can take one women about a month to make.
