Moroccan craftsmanship is as diverse and unique as the country itself, and the perfect souvenir from Fez will be totally different from what you remember from Essaouira. What’s more, what you find will actually be in the spirit of the place. After all, Morocco has not fallen into mass production. In fact, almost everything you see will come from just a few meters away, where traditional craftsmen still ply their trade in small workshops and community cooperatives.
Slippers – Moroccan Leather Slippers, often called slippers, are handmade from locally produced leather. Although they are ubiquitous throughout the country, Fez is the place to find truly unique and well-made slippers. Fez’s famous tanneries supply the raw material, and you can watch master craftsmen stitch their latest creations in the small stores that line the medina’s narrow streets. If you stay further south, Tafraout is also known for its footwear. However, unlike the more drab Fez variety, Tafraouti’s slippers are embroidered with bright, almost psychedelic motifs.
Carpets – Moroccan Handmade Carpets ,Marrakech and Fez are two excellent places to look for the perfect carpet. A guide can help you choose the different designs, colors and sizes, as well as help you learn about the origin of the many symbols and motifs used. However, don’t rush through the smaller co-ops. Many small towns have carpet and textile cooperatives that will be happy to show you their products. In fact, if you already have something in mind, these small establishments are often happy to make a custom rug.those our moroccan carpets rugs online:Beni Mguild Rug , Beni Ourain Moroccan Rug , Boucherouite Moroccan Rug Boujad Moroccan Rug , Kilim Moroccan Rug , Morocco Azilal Rug

Marrakech is home to most of the country’s lantern makers, but you can find them almost anywhere. The sales clerks can help you find certain shapes, sizes and colors, so be honest and say what you are looking for. Even if they don’t have it, chances are they know someone who does.
Wood carving – Thuya Wood Morocco This is where Essaouira really shines. Although wood carvers ply their trade all over Morocco, there is something special to be said about twuia wood that is only found on the southern coast, and locals have been harnessing it for centuries. From large chessboards and plates to small boxes and children’s toys, carvers have perfected the technique of extracting the beautiful from the seemingly mundane, and few visitors leave without at least a small trinket to remind them of Morocco’s laid-back sea coast.
Ceramics – Moroccan Pottery Or Moroccan ceramics can vary greatly from place to place, but a few cities have really made their mark in the ceramics trade. Safi is perhaps the most notable ceramics city, with large markets dedicated to its sale, as well as a wide variety of stores and styles. Safi also offers a more relaxed atmosphere for shopping, and since the pottery is made on site, you are often dealing with the same men who created the plate you hold in your hands. Just outside Zagora, Tamegroute is known for its unique green-glazed pottery.
Moroccan Dagger With Best Style Moroccan Jambiya Dagger And Koummya blades are curved and double edged with the portion nearer the hilt remaining relatively straight while the curvature becomes pronounced in the half towards the tip. The length of the blade which is beveled and sharpened is longer along the concave side than along the opposite convex side. Blade thickness tapers from the base of the blade, where it is thickest, to the tip. While the edge bevels may give the blade a flattened diamond or lenticular cross-section towards the tip, the cross-section is rectangular at the forte. These blades are characteristically relatively thin and utilitarian and the presence of fullers or ridges is not typical.
All this is not to mention the natural oils and dyes, fabrics, kitchen utensils, tapestries, leathers and countless other finds you’ll find as you stroll through the souks. As with many things in Morocco, you’ll be able to make the most of your market day with an open mind and a little curiosity. Take your time and be open to whatever catches your eye.
