Tigmmi means “house” in the native language of Tashelheit. The house is the fundamental building block for all Moroccan societal interactions: it plays host to countless communal meals, gatherings, celebrations, weddings, births, deaths, and funerals. The shrill cries of “Shkoun?!?” (which means “Who?” in Arabic) resound through the halls of these houses on a daily basis as family members and neighbors knock on the doors, seeking entry into their premises and a cup of hot tea to complement their conversations. This carpet was hand woven and crafted in the town of Agdz, Morocco, by Naima and Fatima.
