Handmade by the Following Members of Ighrem Timdokkals
Fatima was born in the village of Agouti in the 1980’s. She studied until middle school but unfortunately had to drop out when she became ill. Later, Fatima became a teacher at a locally run pre-school where she teaches all the children in the village of Agouti how to read and write. Fatima learned how to weave from her mom in her home growing up and specializes in making pile knot rugs. Due to her skill, she quickly joined Association Timdokkals as soon as it was established. She uses the money she earns from the association to buy everyday items. She hopes that her and her association’s rugs become well known throughout the world.

Pile rugs carry huge traditional cultural significance in the Ait Bouguemez valley. When a family first builds a house, or moves into a new home, the first thing women do is weave rugs specifically for each room. All you have to do to learn when a family first built their home or moved into a home is to ask them how old their rugs are. Often, the rugs are more than 20-60 years old even after consistent ware. The designs of Timdokkals are highly unique to the area and are often referred to as "Azilal Rugs", the province in which Timdokkals is located within. This plush rug can add warmth and comfort to any room.
