About The Liberty Cooperative
The Liberty Cooperative is located in the town of Tameslouht, which is located about 20 kilometers outside of Marrakech. Tameslouht is greatly becoming known for its lively and diverse artisan craft scene. Tameslouht's history is long, as artisans here have traditionally made clothing for the Marrakech region for many decades. Today, the artisans of Tamelsouht make a diverse range of products that are primarily sold to middlemen the Marrakech medina. Many of the products that are sold in Marrakech are in fact made in Tameslouht. In attempt to break out of their dependency on Marrakech resellers, artisans like Redwan, the founder of the Liberty Cooperative, have come together to ensure that they could generate the prices they need to support themselves and their business. Redwan specifically named the cooperative with the word liberty to reflect their independence as artisans. Today the cooperative is comprised of seven artisans, all of whom have their own small workshops. 10% of each sale goes back to support the cooperative.
