About Talsint Handicraft Association

The Talsint Handicraft Association was started in May of 2016 in the small rural town of Talsint, Morocco. Nestled where the Saharan foothills meet the eastern slopes of the High Atlas Mountains, Talsint, Morocco, is a place with a rich cultural history around crafts and textiles. It is a small town that serves as a hub for forty seven surrounding villages. The idea for the association took root at the local women’s center when a Peace Corps Volunteer serving in the community initiated a meeting around local craft, the growing demand for Moroccan goods and the possibility of a money-making venture. Thirteen women expressed interest and the group started to create a traditional Moroccan basket known as a “tbaq.” The basket is handmade using a local dried grass that is wound with colorful wool thread into one-of-a-kind designs. The association will also be incorporating traditional rugs from the region. The Talsint Handicraft Association has grown into a vibrant entity, empowering female artisans, preserving their cultural heritage through craft and connecting them to a global market.
