About Azlag Dagger Cooperative

The Amazigh of the present-day Sous-Massa-Draa area of Morocco have been producing daggers for over seven centuries. The history and design of the daggers represent a finely created craft that has evolved since they were first created by the Jewish communities that resided in the area. As such, each dagger and the designs it encompasses reflect the rich and diverse history of Morocco. Today, the legacy of such daggers is protected by the Azlag Dagger Cooperative. Founded in 1983 by a group of dagger makers, the cooperative was established to provide meaningful income to the dagger makers so that the craft could carry on the rich legacy it represents. The cooperative consists of over 60 members, who each have a shop at the cooperative's center in Kelaat M'Gouna and continue to mentor younger generations of dagger makers so the craft can continue for centuries to come.
