There as many ranges of Moroccan carpets as there are in Turkey. Which particular style were you considering? The two main styles in Morocco are Berber and Arab with many many variations. There is no single Turkish design range either! The choice in both countries is enormous.

Try any of the carpet emporiums in the north west of Djemma al Fna souks for your first visit although there are many more outlets elsewhere including the Kasbah district.

4. Re: Moroccon carpet that most resemble Turkish carpets

I would like to buy a wedding blanket and an ourain rug today or tomorrow as We are in Marrakech for two m ore days then heading home. We will likely need to get the rug sent home via courier. Do I need to check out the seller online before I go about getting anything sent via them? I can't seem to find any shop reviews online.

I did find a reputable looking shop yesterday in the souks but couldn't find any reviews abut him online although his website looked good. Please any tips? Are there any particular souks or streets that we should try in the medina?
