Where to buy caftan for wedding?

Hi everyone,

Where in Marrakech is a good place to buy caftans fit for wedding? Any local designers known for creating wedding caftans? Thank you so much your input!

My wife asked advice and was pointed to an upmarket shop with beautiful djellabas and takchitas, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takchita

She enquired of the price and countered this with an offer of 25%. The owner was outraged and showed her the door. I couldn't stop laughing and I've never been forgiven for this (even though it's 20+ years ago).

So normal haggling rules go out of the window when it's real quality. Oh, and my wife's auntie? No way. ;)

Thanks for the advice. Nope, I don't haggle for quality merchandise. I've been trained in Egypt and Tunisia. As for wikipedia website, I don't even go there.

"As for wikipedia website, I don't even go there."

Duh? What you need is a takchita, not a kaftan.

In the heart of the covered souk of Marrakech there are many shops that sell this quality of robe. Some are in (for want of a better description) in little arcades tucked away and off the main route. I've not actually bought anything of this quality but I do know ther prices are much higher than I expected. That being said I still believe the price was acceptable for the quality of fabric and work involved.

There are also some companies on line that do mail order. If you require a link to one pleaes let me know and I will forward it to you. I have not bought from them though so I cannot comment on their service only on the beautiful designs that I keep seeing.
