Zahra specialises in the knotting technique typical of Marmoucha rugs. After Zahra lost her husband in the war, she became the sole provider for her children. She made a living by using the skills and training she received from the women in her family as a little girl. She soon learned to knot high quality rugs, a skill traditional to where she grew up. She was discovered by the Moroccan Ministry of Artisanship and acquired a quality label; she was also given recognition as the “best artisan” in her field. Since then, she formed a cooperative and a community of all the women who played a role in her achievement.
