About Association Ighrem
Association Ighrem was created by a group of woodcarvers in Ait Bougamez, a valley hidden in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco. All the wood that the association uses for its carvings are not cut from live trees. Instead, the carvers collect the wood once a year after severe storms break or damage trees high up in the mountains surrounding the valley. The Association Ighrem uses creates individually hand-crafted items out of wood native to Morocco. These items include intricately designed bowls, spoons, and forks, as well as other culturally-specific items like pictoral reliefs representing the lives of everyday in Ait Bougemez. Association Ighrem also provides free training for anyone who wants to learn wood sculpting in their village. Upon the sale of any item produced by the wood shop, Atelier de Sculpture donates up to 30% of the item's price to Association Ighrem, which in turn uses the proceeds to help fund projects in the surrounding villages.
