Sefrou Artisan Visit

As an organization embedded deep into Sefrou’s medina, we have built on the rich relations we have established over the years with the local community and artisan-ship. Finally we launch our Sefrou Artisan Visit.

As curious visitors, you are lead on an exploration to meet the personalities and characters that make up this embracing and genuine market town and uncover Sefrou’s hidden treasures. Let us steer you through the ancient city of Sefrou, open the doors to the local crafts, shake the hands of the makers and discover Sefrou’s multi layered history.

Craftspeople visited include blanket weavers, plough-makers, ironmongers, button makers, tailors and wood carvers. Much of the expertise has been passed on from generations and some through the once abundant Jewish culture; a now quickly vanishing attribute.
