Artisans in the medina of Marrakesh

We have been exploring the many artisans’ workshops in the vicinity of the Museum of Marrakech and the residential area of Sidi ben Slimane (and Riad Sapphire and Spa), in the old city of Marrakesh.

It is in these workshops that many of the wonderful products on sale in the suqs are manufactured. Some of the workshops are in full view as you wander the alleyways of the medina of Marrakech, others are hidden from view, often in the old caravanserais where traders would stay the night as they came to the city to buy and sell.
