Henna Stained Hand Picking Rose flower, Dades Valley (Valley of Roses), Morocco
Close up of rose farmer Touda’s henna stained hands picking a rose flower, Kelaat M’Gouna, Southern Morocco, 2016-05-14.
Roses are mainly farmed in the Dades Valley to produce and sell rose water, a bi-product of making rose oil through the distillation of pure, fresh rose petals. High in vitamin E, rose water is popular in Morocco and internationally for both its cosmetic and culinary use. The rose season and harvest is so important to the Dades region that a special festival celebration is held each year in Kelaat Mgouna – a small town in the Dades region which is named the valley of roses.
