The hand of a ceramist
The reputation of Moroccan craftsmanship is second to none. The industry brings together many trades – colorful baskets, wood, fabric, ceramics and pottery, rugs, lighting and furniture, all worked by hand using machines and traditional tools. The craftsmanship is rich, ancestral, timeless and it brings together long traditions of both Arab and Berber influences.
