Fatima is from Teduit ZanFi, is married to, and is the mother of three. She is 50 years old. Fatima has never had the opportunity ti attend school, but is now working to improve her literacy skills through classes taught by the association. Fatima learned the craft of weaving from her mother. Because she was married to a man from a different village and lived there for many years, she often would go back and forth between her and her husband's village. After her husband passed away she has been the sole breadwinner for herself and her children. Fatima specializes in carpets, and has been a member of the cooperative since its inception.
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.
