Since I had the exact same question, I did a little Googling, and the results were fascinating! It turns out the tanneries of Fez have been operating continuously – with no machinery or automation and using natural colorants for dyeing – for like a friggin' millenium. The leather produced there is prized for its quality, and exported to craftspeople all over Europe and the world, although many goods, like their famous slippers, are made right there in Morocco. Oh, and apparently you can just mosey into any of the several tanneries in Fez and they are happy to take you on an impromptu tour. I was so taken by this whole neat thing that I started helping the Wikipedian who created the pertinent articles with "translating" them into cleaner-flowing text. And I'm a vegetarian that doesn't even use leather!!!

Also accept Faeroes or Færoes (and Faeroe islands) - it took me ages to get the English spelling.

Also Føroyar and Færøerne? I think Faeroe Islands is just the older way to spell this. People are lazy, they drop letters...

Not sure how Filipino couldn't also be any number of Pacific Islander ethnicities. Any one of the people in that picture could be Micronesian.
