Our tour provided guide lead us down to this little alley that I'm not even sure I could find my way back to again. It was my favorite area in the souks, probably because we weren't as pressured to buy something as we were at other stalls. It was neat to see how they get the scarves to be different... More

I love textiles and was keen to see the dyers area in the Marrakech souks. We walked round and round the area as shown on our map and couldn't find it. Eventually a man took us into an area where we could photograph some dyed wool having from beams. He then put pressure on us to buy scarves. Then we... More

Be careful with false guides who are actually staff who work within the Dyers District. They will show you to the area, as well as the general process involved in dying, but later ask for a fee. I was involved in one such incident where the guide's friends said I should tip my guide for his efforts to bring us... More

Later we learned how to handle a guide you di not ask for...Say stop, thats enough, leave us in peace, i english or french,... More

This isnt a long stop but is definitely worth the short exploration. Its a thousand year old tradition that really gives some perspective to life in marrakech. Bring your camera.

We walked through the medina and souk to reach the dyers district. Unfortunately we kept being harassed by a young boy who wanted to take us there (for a payment), when it's an easy place to find. Quiet area, visited by a small number of tourists. Not anything like the scale of the one in Fes.

If you enter the souks from the north end (just past Rue de Mouassine) and follow round to the right you will find the dyers souks. Lots of brightly coloured scarves and wool suspended over the lanes on ropes to dry. Shopkeepers will want to arrange a headscarf desert style in the hope you will buy. Like in the rest... More
