When I was planning our trip to Morocco, one of the items I knew I was going to purchase was a carpet. Since we own an oriental rug and a Persian rug that we purchased in Manhattan, we had a good idea as to what we would consider a very good deal in Morocco. During our visit to Fes, we... More

We purchased a beautiful rose runner "Superieure" for 8,000 Dirham ($1000 dollars), approx. 2.43 sq. meters - the original asking price was 9,700 Durham. Maybe we could have gotten it for less but we know that it would cost at least $3,000 dollars in the US (plus taxes of at least $250), we love it, and we had a blast... More

Generally, unless you are able to dedicate the time to educate yourself and go out into the country to where the carpets are made, you will not likely get a bargain or a steal in any carpet shop in any city anywhere in Morocco.

Far. I have seen lots of other carpets in Merzouga and Marrakesh but not a single one like the one I bought in... More

The most egregious of our trip to Morocco was going to the Rug Co-Op in Fes called Aux Marveilles du Tapis. We were repeatedly told that this was the place to go, the best and most unique rugs without parallel. We ended up spending $2,000 US on 2 rugs that we ended up seeing in Marrakech for 1/10 the cost... More

I thought I'd gotten a good deal, or at least a fair one, when I paid less than half the asking price for a Berber killim at Aux Merveilles du Tapis, but then I saw the same rug --same colors, pattern, size--in Marrakesh for less than half of what I paid. The price on the tag is purely fictitious at... More
