I saw this from a roof top of a leather shop that wanted to give us a tour and show us the tannery in hope we would buy some of their goods. We didnt and that didnt please the owner but who cares :)
Anyway you MUST see this. It is such a strange experience. The smell is so over powering but you can quickly get used to it if you have a strong tolerance. Have someone explain to you the process from A to Z and you will be fascinated. Just amazing how leather is made in this way.
The owner told us that this place is a cooperative and everyday a new family comes to make leather. There is no central ownership so it helps the poor make their way up. If you are in Fes, i would recommend you get a tour guide and once you do make sure he/she takes you to this spot.
