  In the suqs of Marrakesh
by tini58de

What to buy: Actually there is not so much specific information that I can give you here. We did see lots of carpets in the suqs and we were taken to a carpet cooperative to have a little information and shopping opportunity. It was quite interesting to see the different types of materials (wool, silk, camel wool etc), patterns and colors, but non of us bought anything.

If you are interested in buying a carpet, you might want to make sure you get a proper receipt and maybe also a tax refund!
