Ayah Filali: Morocco

Mariam Keita

Ayah Filali: Morocco

Stunting in tradition from head to toe.

“It is a Moroccan tradition to wear this to special events. The whole outfit is worn from the earrings to the scarf, rings to the shoes. It is called a kaftan. My mom and dad are both from Morocco, my grandparents and ancestors are also from Morocco, so I have a very strong Moroccan culture. If you were in Morocco and you would go to a very special event, whether it’s a wedding or a baby shower, you’d see a lot of people wearing this. Generations and generations of people have been wearing it.”
