Female craftsmanship is very diverse in Algeria. Traditional crafts (traditional clothes, accessories, kitchen utensils, rugs, etc.) are highly developed in all regions and are sold mainly on traditional or religious celebrations.

Contemporary Algerian craftsmanship is constantly evolving, mainly in urban areas, in the ready-to-wear, accessories or interior decoration sector.

To promote the place of women artisans and the importance of their contribution to the economy, by federating actions of visibility and promotion of their know-how, Res’Art has made this space available to them to tell us about their passions
