New RAKEN products : "Leather"
Tanning has a long tradition in the Maghreb. Whereas Marrakesh remains the best known tanning place in Northwestern Africa, the craft is done in many other places of Morocco and Tunisia too. The most commonly used hides in these regions are sheep and goat hides. After featuring lamps with leather for some time, RAKEN is now introducing other leather products : the famous leather hassocks and our Hamel Collection,  where goat leather is coupled with the Hamel tapestry from the South of Tunisia in a number of useful things, such as brief-cases, handbags, mirrors and jewel cases

RAKEN designed website  SOS Tunisia wins Tanitweb Gold trophy
RAKEN Services has designed a descriptive website for SOS Tunisia, a philanthropic association which has three villages (Gamarth, Siliana and Mahres), home of 250 orphan children in Tunisia. The website is a gift from RAKEN Services to support the promotional efforts of the association, which needs all the support it can get to pursue its mission. The site will be temporarily hosted under the
www.raken.com domain, until SOS Tunisia finds a sponsor for the web hosting. Be numerous to visit this site and to give your support to the SOS Children’s Villages in Tunisia and in the World.

At the Tanitweb 2001 contest of the best Tunisian web sites, the SOS Tunisia web site, which ran under the category civil associations,
won the “Gold Tanit”.

You will find all this and much more in our extensive web site www.raken.com. We hope you will enjoy your visit and come back regularly for new excursions into the Mediterranean, Arabic and African cultures.
