Abd El Jalil is one of four of remaining damascene artisans in Morocco. All of them are located in Meknes. He is over 70 years-old and still continues to use his hands in the same manner as his father and grandfather. He represented Morocco and his art in several programmes abroad. Abd El Jalil and his peers are disillusioned by the lack of interest from the younger generation to excel in the artisanship of damascene, rendering it a dying art in Morocco.
