MEET THE ARTISAN
IRAQ AL-AMIR WOMEN'S COOPERATIVE
Located in: Jordan
Iraq Al-Amir Women’s Cooperative has empowered skilled craftswomen since 1993. The artisans are mostly single women from rural communities, many of whom have worked with the cooperative since its beginnings. They achieve economic independence through this dignified work; more than half of them provide financial support to their families. Otherwise, many of them would remain secluded at home and rely on their fathers and brothers. They now have the ability to take on leadership roles and make decisions for the betterment of their communities. Craftswomen create beautiful ceramics using different colored clays, glazes, and plaster while practicing a slip-casting technique.
