NOMADIC WALNUT CUTTING BOARDS- THE WONDERFUL STORY OF HAMID.

MEETING HAMID-THE STORY.

in a small berber village by the foot of the atlas mountains sits Hamid. Hamid has been a carpenter since a young age. Normally he gets orders from the souk in Marrakech, and competition is hard for the jobs so the pay is not good. One day a woman walks past. She sees his attention to detail and notices a few pieces of walnut wood left over from an order of a cabinet. The woman draws some shapes of cutting boarDs on them, four pieces . She pays good and leaves. One month later she comes back and orders 100 pieces. She says the Swedes loves the cutting boards. Hamid is very happy. He doesn’t exactly know where Sweden is but feels proud to be appriciated for his work. He is getting more money and instead of sitting on the floor working, him and his brother invests in some chairs and also electricity to their workshop so that they can work at night. The next month the woman comes back and orders 1000 pieces. Hamid now for the first time in his life has a little extra money. The whole family has a job, they can buy food, even some clothing for the winter and they can afford to go to the doctor if someone gets ill.
