 THE HANDICRAFT  :

                 Until a recent past, the traditional societies have continued to make home-made objects to use them in their daily life with local materials.

                 Today, handicraft has become an activity which accompanies tourism par excellence.

More than a marketable product, it is the reflection of the culture of a people, of its creativity and its know-low.

M'sila harbors various handicraft activities ranging from the manufacture of useful household objects to arts and crafts.

The handicraft production is concentrated in the regions of M'sila, BOU SAASA and AIN EL MELH.

It deals essentially with weaving, the marking of traditional clothes, tapestry, fine leather craft, jewelry and ironworks.

                 The installation of the chamber of crafts and trades in the province of M'silahas recorded 2100 adhesions thanks to its training and promotion action.

The handicraft activity is expected to regain its place in the economy of the region and could serve as a boost to the local touristic activity.
