Tarwa means “children” in the native language of Tashelheit. Children in southern Morocco are a hardy, industrious lot who are often given free reign to play and roam about in the community during the daytime hours, only returning home for communal meals and for rest during the hottest parts of the day. They are treated like little adults and are expected to behave as such, with children performing important duties during major social events such as weddings, funerals, and religious holidays. This carpet was hand woven and crafted in the town of Agdz, Morocco, by Naima and Fatima.
