Cooperative Artisanale des Femmes de Marrakesh

Arts & Crafts in Mouassine & Bab Doukkala

A showcase for Marrakesh’s women mâalems (master artisans), the cooperative is eye-opening and a total bargain. Original, handcrafted designs include handbags made from water bottle caps wrapped in wool, hand-knitted kessa (hammam gloves) and black-and-white kaftans edged with red silk embroidery. Ask cooperative director Souad Boudeiry about getting tunics and dresses tailor-made.
