Between Fashion and Crafts

Essaouira will not only seduce you with its natural and wild beauty. You will also be surprised by the know-how of its craftsmen, undoubtedly among the most talented in Morocco.

Walking under the Scala of the old Mogador, along the old casemates of the fort, you’ll be able to admire the cabinetmakers and markers working with dexterity and ingenuity thuja wood, silver and copper wire, mother-of-pearl and fragments of camel bone. How not to be tempted by the beauty of jewelry boxes, furniture, checkers and chessboards, which deserve a place of choice in your interior. You’ll fall in love with the woven wool blankets and traditional raffia or nubuck slippers.

While you’re ticking off valuable crafts and objects, keep room in your suitcase for argan oil, a speciality of the Essaouira region. In addition to enjoying its anti-ageing virtues and embellishing your dishes, taking this delight with you is a way to encourage these skillful women managing cooperatives.

Although mainly traditional, the shopping experience has a lot of wonders in its pockets making you ask for more : from unique objects to luxury clothing for any stylista.
