Feija tribe

This village is landlocked in the mountains of the Moroccan Anti-Atlas, until the early 2000s, it was accessible only on foot or accompanied by mules. The architecture of their typical houses is entirely made of local stones. The village is mostly inhabited by women,  the lack of work force men to leave for bigger big cities.

Two cooperatives and more than 45 Berber women work in this tribal territory. Women weavers go on keeping this ancestral savoir-faire alive as the veil is still used for wedding ceremonies.
