Morocco’s own handicrafts are perhaps its most historic and traditional art. Most of the handicrafts and the techniques used to make them are inherited. For this reason, each manufactured artefact is of great artistic and cultural value.

In Morocco, we can find beautiful pieces of pottery. The star cities for pottery are Safi and Fez, where they specialise in blue-coloured ceramics. In other cities such as Marrakesh, Rabat and Azemmur, these products are also produced, but in glazed or glazed earthenware.


Moroccan leather goods are very popular with tourists. You can find leather goods, accessories and articles of clothing. And a wide variety of decorative items and furniture, from cushions to pouffes.


Moroccan basketry was born with a practical purpose, and this is evident in the variety of materials used. From reeds to rushes and dwarf palm trees, they create furniture, decorative items and, of course, baskets to carry shopping in a very convenient way.

Carpets and embroidery

The most striking and elaborate embroideries are found in northern Morocco. They are distinguished by the techniques used and their rich colours.
