Leather – Ethnic Collective Co.

Leather


Fez is well known for its leather, the Chouara Tannery is the oldest of the 3 in the city. The men working with leather are still using the same methods used centuries ago. 

We met with Mr Habib, a colourist who can produce 17 different colours in his leather dying workshop. Starting in 1976, he provides coloured leather to many artisans within the Medina.  We got to see Mr Habib's leather being used to make purses, it was pretty special to be able to see the supply chain within this small community.
