Abedelmajid Rais El Fenni - Founder
name is Abedelmajid Rais El Fenni. I was born in Fez, Morocco in
1951. Raised on a farm with my uncle until the age of seven, then
moved back to Fez to study. I left school at the age of fourteen
and I moved to Tangier at the age of fifteen in June 1965. I started
working in a little bazaar in the Medina of Tangiers. I was a salesman
for four years from the medina to the Kasbah, and then I started
my own shop "Boutique Majid" in 1970
in partnership with my uncle Hajj Mohammed Rais El Fenni.
He was a great teacher and had great taste. I have to mention
my father Hajj Idriss Raiss El Fenni, since he was behind
all my success.
great people along the way, I pushed the walls every ten years,
making Boutique Majid bigger, nicer and more interesting. Along
the road , I found that in this business, the best part of it is
finding things and traveling around to far-out places.
1974, I met my wife Mie Nielsen, who came to visit from Copenhagen,
Denmark. She fell in love with everything here!. She has been the
artist behind the scenes ever since.
over the years I built up a fabulous collection of textiles and
silk embroideries, jewelry from different tribes of Morocco, and
after 30 years of traveling and searching and collecting, there
was "Boutique Majid". Come and visit to experience
this fabulous place yourself."
