Anaya is from Teduit ZanFi, is married to a man from the local village and is the mother of nine children, all of whom are married. Only one of her daughters stayed to live in her village, who helps her with her weaving. Anaya taught all of her daughters the craft of weaving, just as she learned the craft from her mother. From the earnings she receives from her products she helps support her husband financially. Anaya joined the association to have easier access to a marketplace where she could sell her products with the hope of one day being able to have them at a craft exhibition.
The designs made by the association are rooted in the long weaving history of the region. Many of these rugs, known as Taznakht rugs, are made distinct by bright reds and yellows, colors that represent the landscape in which the rugs were made. These bohemian style rugs have a contemporary feel while incorporating traditional Moroccan designs.
Moroccan artisans are paid a meagre 4% of an average sale online or in local markets.
But with your help we can change that!
Every product on Anou is priced by artisans themselves and Anou shows
exactly where your money goes. When buying handmade Moroccan crafts always ask for pricing breakdowns from sellers.
