#zaouia #sidi #ahmed #tijani is an #islamic #complex for #education and #commemoration dedicated to the #founder of the 18th century #tijaniyyah#sufi #tariqa – #sheikh #ahmed al #tijani who was originally from the #senegal and is #buried here

it is located in fes’s #old #medina and has stunning #ornamented #facades

visit to the famous #fes #tanneries where #leather is produced and #dyedby going through a process of being soaked in a #limestone mixture, scraped, washed, naturally dyed and dried

the #smell can be overwhelming and the work seemed arduous and #hazardous with not much protection 
we were told people who work in tanneries are #paid well but their #working #conditions could certainly improve
more photos here.
