Thank u Adamus and Joy34
This Photo watch tanneries of Fès. The skins of the animals are transformed there. In the tanks, they are treated by traditional products (Tannin), then dyed and dried with the sun before being delivered to the craftsmen who will make the accessoirs of them that I showed on the preceding shots.
This tannery works since The 15° century and leather providing from here is more appréciated than industrial leather cause theire are no chemical products added in the process.

Oh yes! They work all the day, feets in the tanks and the head with the sun!!!! But I believe that this hard work preserves a good health.
