Carpet making is a female craft here in Morocco and they are absolutely beautiful. I had the opportunity once to see the process from start to finish and it’s unreal the amount of work that is put in to one carpet.
And yet the shops in the souks are filled with beautiful works of art. As are the homes.
The other day while in the souks I ended up purchasing a carpet, purple of course. It was a tough decision given all of my options in the little shop with stacks of carpets to choose from. But the owner did provide me with a cup of mint tea while he pulled out more and more carpets for me to choose from.
But now I’m on my way to filling my apartment with all things Moroccan!
