Handmade by the Following Members of Association El Wifak
Naima was born in Gaouz and is 31 years old. Naima only got to study for three years in primary school, dropping out because of her family's living conditions. However, she has continued to learn through locally provided literacy courses. Now, she is a mentor in Association El Wifak and she specializes in Crochet. She learned how to crochet thanks to the local women's association where she got to earn her diploma in knitting. She hopes that the local products will continue to become known nationally and internationally, and allow for their local community to have a prosperous future.

The iconic Tahrouit are seen practically everywhere in Saharan Morocco as it is one of the most common pieces of clothing worn by women of the area. The Tahrouits are defined by black fabric stitched with intricate designs in neon colors. The designs stem from a blend of traditional Amazigh and Saharan cultures and most designs carry special meaning. For example, some designs note if a woman is married or if a woman is single. Although Taharouits are worn by the local women as pieces of clothing in Goulmima, they can alternatively be used as scarves, or home decorations such as bedcovers or curtains.
