Handmade by the Following Members of Cooperative Tifawin
Born in 1977 in Azrou, Mina Achtouk is married to a mason. Together they have two sons in primary school. It was very important for Mina that her sons attend school because she didn’t get that chance growing up in poverty. Instead, she learned how to weave from the women in her family. When she got married she used her skills and sold her handwoven rug to finance her sons’s education. Mina specializes in boucherouite. When the cooperative Tifawin opened its doors in 2014, she joined it so she could gain control over her own income and work with and learn from other weavers.
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.
