Born in 1985, Redwan has been a weaver since he was very young and learned how to weave from his father. After traveling to many different craft fairs and meeting with various artisans, he got the idea to form a cooperative so they could keep the full value for the work that they sell. In 2013, he finally got the approval for Cooperative Liberty. Redwan specializes in creating the designs for many of the cooperatives products and is also skilled in embroidery. Redwan is married and has two children.
Born in Marrakech, Mehdi grew up in Tamslouht amongst a family of artisans and masters in traditional weaving, he was taught by the best. He continues to create his own path through the cooperative.
Bitannias are versatile fabrics. They are thick and soft enough to be used as a warm cover. They are also durable enough to be used as a rug. Bitannias by Cooperative Liberty are made on a horizontal loom using thick wefts of handspun wool. Many bitannias also have large, fluffy pom poms.
