It is still uncommon for women to be a part of the workforce in Morocco. Family and tradition often discourage or ban women from taking jobs. If they do work, they are rarely paid a fair wage for their trouble. Recognizing the need to empower women in their communities, women are organizing small fair trade cooperatives around the country, providing training and fair wage jobs for local women. They work with natural materials and traditional practices to craft beautiful pieces. Each piece you buy supports these amazing cooperatives empowering women in rural Morocco.
