Handicraft shopping in Rabat

Rabat is an active capital, especially inside of its shopping streets and markets. Traditional handicrafts coexist with those revisited by modern designers.

The medina is not to be outdone. This historic district brims with all kinf of shops. Stroll the maze to discover its various trades. In Souk Sebbat and Souika streets, stalls overflow with leather goods, slippers and bags, traditional fabrics and clothes. A few meters away, the rue des Consuls is renowned for the silver jewellery and the famous rbatis carpets. The local gastronomy is not to be outdone ; Moroccan pastries, spices and all sorts of local foodstuffs will delight your taste buds.

Embroidery is another popular art that the Rbatis master perfectly. Silk brocade, muslin, cotton and linen, are embroidered with virtuosity to compose marvellous pieces of fabric which are a great use in traditional clothes such as caftan but also in furnishing fabrics.

A few kilometres from the medina, the potters are making the fame of the place, especially in the Oulja complex which is located in Sale. You’ll discover craftsmen who shape the clay soil, taking advantage from its flexibility and its relief, to make charming souvenirs and useful everyday tools ; from tagines, to vases or lamps. You’ll also find wrought iron and basketry objects in Oulja.

Inspired by its deep-rooted tradition and modern creation, Rabat offers a craft and know-how of undeniable authenticity and yet accommodates the most daring innovations !
