About Women's Cooperative of Khenifra
The jellaba button is an essential part of traditional Moroccan clothing and are individually hand sewn together. Naturally, it is a tedious process that requires a steady hand mixed with considerable talent. After hand making jellaba buttons for most of their lives and selling them to seamstresses for little pay, a group of women, with the help of U.S. Peace Corps volunteers, decided to create their own products using jellaba buttons. As a result, they created a new, innovative jewelry line that blends contemporary and traditional Moroccan design. The products quickly became a hit, and have since become one of the most popular artisan crafts in Morocco. To manage the explosive growth of their sales, the group of women decided to become an official cooperative in 2008. Today, the cooperative provides meaningful income to a bustling group of 20 women and their families who are currently working on their next design to sell to you!
