Essaouira is well known for its woodwork and you can visit a string of shops near the Skala de la Ville. However, the marquetry work is made from local fragrant thuya wood, which is now an endangered species – buying anything made from thuya threatens the last remaining stands of trees by increasing demand and therefore encouraging illegal logging.
