Morocco : land of authentic artisanship and creativity (Part 1 )

Morocco's cultural wealth extends to its traditional artisanship, which has been available in a more design-oriented version for a few years now. Various and diverse materials are finely worked by hand using traditional machinery and tools to create decorative and utilitarian objects. You'll almost certainly try to take some Moroccan treasures home with you, whether it's table art, jewelry, or skill!

Morocco is also an artisanal country. You may see the work of the argile at Safi, Fès, or Zagora. The tapis are the stars of the show in Ouarzazate. Marrakech isn't like the rest of the world: here, among other things, leather is made. Babouches, bags, and other salon items are made by tanneries. A collection of elegant creations that combine the most avant-garde aesthetic advancements with the allure of tradition.

The Moroccan Rugs 

 In the Moroccan cities of Rabat, Fès, and Tétouan, you may find a wide range of artisanal products, including the famous medina tapestries. Original and intricate motifs, both in the center and on the edges depending on the application, provoke deep thought about their meanings. In Morocco, the value of a carpet is directly proportional to the number of noeuds and designs that make it up; nevertheless, the citadin of the countryside must be distinguished!

Traditional customs


Traditional dress, which is still worn at celebrations and ceremonies, has taken on a new look. Try it without the well-known caftan! Babouches are also a sign of traditional Moroccan capability. This style is now available in all coutures, and many designers are offering models that are very design-forward and contemporary.
