this keychain is made out of moroccan ribbons called sfifa. originally they are used for decorating traditional caftans.

developing from ‘sabra’ to ‘sfifa’ the threads are transformed step by step into keychains. they are braided into ribbons on the outskirts of marrakech using an antique machine.

this keychain is produced by zahra from the women’s association al kawtar in marrakech. each keychain can be assembled individually, using different carabiners, tags and mini tags.

for every keychain sold - we give something back to al kawtar.
at the end of each year we give a donation to one of their projects.



material: rayon (natural fiber)
color: soft blue
size: approx. 40cm when worn around the neck
made by zahra and the women at al kawtar

this is AMAL

amal means hope in arabic.


since 2018, amal makes all yoomee bracelets by hand with great care. and since 2020, she has the support of four other women who work from home.

some of the women have a physical impairment or a family at home and for this reason are not able to travel to a workplace. for this reason it is important to us that all women are free to decide from where and how much they want to work. this way the women can generate their own income and live independently. which leads us to our moto.

Independence is empowerment
