1000 Welcomes orders and purchases Beni Ourain rugs directly from certificated women’s cooperatives. These cooperatives are equivalent of shelter for women artisans who are protected from buyers who request very low prices for their hard work. Working in cooperatives provide women of rural Morocco with a steady income, a fair-trade wage and good working conditions. Perhaps most importantly, the co-ops give women a keen sense of empowerment and ability to provide, and send their children to school.
