Saadia moved to Khenifra when she married her husband years ago. She and her husband, a fruit and vegetable seller at the local market, have five children. Because she is not educated herself, she has made it a point to enroll all of her children in school. Of the children that are grown up, one works as a seamstress and another plays for a semi-professional soccer team that travels throughout Morocco. With the money she earns from her sales, she’ll invest it in her children and contribute it towards household needs.
This necklace has an elegant bohemian feel. After hand sewing each jellaba button from scratch, the women then sew the buttons together along with assorted buttons acquired in local markets to create this item.
