Latifa Kutani is from Tadula Zanfi and is the mother of three children. She learned how to weave from her mom and works in the association during her free time. In addition to her work at home and in the association, she is also enrolled in her association’s literacy course.
Ijja was born in Teznacht and moved to Teduit ZanFi because that is where her husband's family lived. She is the mother to six children, all of whom are still in school. Four of them live in Agadir, leaving the village to look for a job. Ijja lives with two of her children, one of whom is suffering from mental illness. There is no way to get treatment for her, though the other four children have chipped in to try and cover medical expenses. Now, she is still in the process of looking for money to be able to pay for treatment for her sick son. Ijja used to just make rugs by herself, but it is was not enough to support her son and herself. Then, one person from the association encouraged her to join as a member. The association donated some livestock and weaving materials to her and her family and have allowed her to earn more income. She hopes that her products will sell well.
Hasna is the mother of two small children and has been weaving all of her life. She learned how to weave from her aunt when she was very young. She studied until the sixth grade and had to stop studying after that. In lieu of the school, Hasna has been able to continue developing her weaving skills at the association. Though she earns little from her weaving, she hopes that through the association there will be greater global demand for her village’s rugs!

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.
