Our private tour guide took us to this location. We ended up purchasing a very nice hand made silk rug. We didn't plan to buy anything but made a purchase. It was fascinating to see all of the hand crafted locally made goods.

This is a HUGE location FULL of the most wonderful hand made Moroccan goods. It would be hard to leave this place without buying something. I HATE shopping, yet this was quite enjoyable. We ended up getting a beautiful rug, fez vase, and lantern.

Other reviewers commenting on how "they're passing on their culture" or "that this is their work and they love it" have clearly been taken in by these guys and are parroting back some of their catch-phrases. I have bought souvenirs in Turkey and elsewhere in...More

I have visited Tangier twice and both times bought carpets here. Very good quality. Yes, of course, you have to bargain to get the best price. In both cases they shipped the rugs back to me in the US. The second time, the shipper mixed...More
