This shop offers a nice break from the haggling of Marrakech being that all the prices are fixed. These women with disabilities who are paid fare wages produce great items. I purchased a shoe bag and 8 napkins. The center uses donations to provide medical care and day programs for these women with disabilities and offers them an opportunity to... More

My family and I ended up buying most of our gifts from this wonderful coop. Definitely worth a visit when you are in town.

It can be hard to find nice gifts that are made by women (because in almost every shop you see men, and men making things). Well, this is the place to be! We bought nice napkins. Very friendly women.

This workshop and boutique is tucked away in a side street, but persevere in your quest to find it, as it's worth a visit. The benefactor(s) behind this enterprise should be commended for their noble actions, as the disabled ladies that work here are able to earn an honest living for their families in comfortable and convivial surroundings. My wife... More

Nice place to visit and do a little shop. Have delicately embroidered pieces for sale by disabled women to support them. Could have had more variety of items but we still found more than enough to fill the hollows of our suitcase with.

hand-embroidered table linens in spare, striking designs, all made at a nonprofit vocational training and daycare centre for disabled women and their children. Exquisitely edged pillow cases, pijamas, children clothing, bed linen, hand towels and napkins make lovely feel-good gifts at perfectly reasonable fixed prices. A great effort to help women living a life with terrible diseases but with a... More
