Shopping in Rif Mountains

  • Shopping in Chefchaouen

    La Botica de la Abuela Aladdin

    Welcome to Chefchaouen's store of witchcraft and wizardry, where natural soaps and spices dangle from the ceiling like potions and elixirs at Hogwarts. The three-decade-old shop gets packed with customers mining for individual items, but the owners make things easy by stringing together kitchen- and bathroom-starter packs. Several copycat shops are around town, but this is the original.

    Boutique Terrae

    The tiny boutique below Dar Terrae stands out from the rest of Chefchaouen's bazaar-style shops, offering unique bags, charming bracelets, cute notebooks and fashionable summer shirts. Many of the items are made from camel-skin leather. Hotel-owner Bilal drives around Morocco to curate all the items himself.

    L'Art De L'Artisanat Berbère

    This cooperative lined wall-to-wall-to-wall with rugs and blankets may be a challenge to find down an alley near Bab El Ain, but it's worth the hunt. The not-so-pushy salesmen are a treat compared to what you might experience further south, and the products are of good quality. Cooperative profits are shared among 35 local families. Haggling encouraged.

  • Shopping in Tetouan

    Dar Lebadi

    The shopping palace of the medina, this 200-year-old building, a former governor’s house, has been meticulously restored. It is a clearing house for Berber artisans and Rabati carpets, and has friendly staff. Worth a stop just to see the building, but be careful: you may be there for hours.
