Fez is an amazing place to find rare souvenirs – from little leather bags to 17th-century jewellery, the Old Medina is a treasure trove hidden right in the cultural capital of Morocco. Although the long, narrow streets of Fez El-Bali are filled with amazing little artifacts, here are the best places to buy souvenirs in Fez.
This little souvenir shop sells all kinds of traditional Moroccan pottery, in all colours, sizes and shapes. You also get a free tour of the workshop to witness the process of how they’re made. The prices might be higher than the ones found in the Medina, but according to the owner of Art Naji, they use ‘better quality products’.
Aux Merveilles du Tapis
This place sells amazing, handmade Moroccan rugs that you won’t be able to find anywhere else thanks to their top quality and unique designs. The prices are quite high, so don’t be afraid to bargain!
Medin’Art is a little shop located in the Old Medina of Fez. It’s more of an artsy place with original artwork and unlike what you’ll get used to seeing in the Medina. It sells fashion items, as well as souvenirs and plenty of goodies mixing art and tradition that you’ll most certainly want to take back home.
In this little factory you’ll get a chance to see how Moroccan pottery and tiles are made from start to finish. You can buy items as they are in the shop, or you can have them custom made and shipped to your home abroad. It’s definitely worth a visit while in Fez.
This vibrant street market is perfect to get little bits and pieces, like Moroccan spices, dried fruit, nuts, and even home-made jam. Take in the different smells of local products and colourful spices, and don’t forget to haggle for a good bargain!
