The Khzana Women's Cooperative is composed of 18 women and was created in 2008 in the rural village of Khzana, near Chefchaouen. The women are dedicated to textile handicrafts and try to innovate in handicraft production by incorporating new designs based on the patterns of the culture of this area of northern Morocco.
In collaboration with Aethnic, this project is focused on improving the skills of the women in the cooperative as a means to help ensure the economic viability of their business. The support translates into training actions in management and administration, textile design techniques and marketing and commercialization. In order to diversify sources of income, the project contemplates the creation of a new line of business focused on the development of sustainable tourism activities based on textile handicrafts.
