Childhood Memories in a Berber Village
As a child in my father's Berber village, I vividly remember the women singing in the fields. Their voices, imbued with the soul and the earth, echoed through the valleys and mountains, creating an unforgettable melody that has never left my memory. Now, as an adult, I embarked on a journey to rediscover and share this cultural richness. This led me to discover "The Songs of Tassaout", a literary treasure translated by René Euloge.

MRIRIDA N’AÏT ATTIK: THE REBEL AMAZIGH POETESS, AN INSPIRATION FOR KACIEYEWEAR
Mririda N’Aït Attik, a rebellious poetess of the High Atlas in the 1940s, resonated with a particular strength. Her songs, imbued with freedom and beauty, spoke of the torments of love, the condition of women, and the resistance to the French occupier. René Euloge, an artist and translator, was captivated by her spirit and voice, and immortalized her poems in his work “The Songs of Tassaout.” Born in the rusticity of Magdaz village, Mririda, the voice of the Tassaout river, stood proudly against conventions. “I was nicknamed Mririda, Mririda, the nimble frog of the meadows,” she proclaimed, symbolizing resistance and audacity. These same qualities inspire our brand today, KACIEYEWEAR.
