The Association Feminine du Dades is a small womens co-operative located inside the rose valley of Kelaat Mgouna and works to help local woman in the region find employment as well as create sustainable and ethical trade for rose farmers and pickers in the region.
Here Zahra, a member of Association Feminine du Dades, shows a group of tourists around the distillery and talks them through the process of how to make rose water.
Using the rose water they produce through distillation, local co-operatives are able to make cosmetic product ranges to sell to shops across Morocco and also sell bottles of good quality water for culinary & cosmetic use.
