Women Artisans of Morocco: Their Stories, Their Lives, vividly portrays more than twenty-five artisans and their colourful world in varied regions throughout Morocco.
The book reveals the personal stories of weavers, embroiderers, button makers, and a seamstress. Stepping into the lives of these Moroccan women artisans, you will gain an appreciation for their artistic skills and ingenuity.
You will also admire their strong roles in this supposedly male-dominated society and their fierce independence and determination as they work to improve their economic livelihoods.
You will be welcomed into their homes in rural Berber villages, in bustling cities, and in a remarkable desert oasis and learn what it is like to live as a woman in the rapidly changing society of Morocco.
Joe Coca's award-winning photography captures the authentic beauty of the women, their work, and the wildly diverse lands of Morocco.
