Jamade – chic boutique in Marrakech

Jamade boutique
Close to the café/restaurant Un déjeuner à Marrakech, just off the rue Kennaria that becomes the rue Riad Zitoun Jdid, you will find a small square with a couple of interesting boutiques.

One is Jamade – for interesting one-of-a-kind decorative objects, bags, clothing and wonderfully aromatic organic perfumes made in Morocco. They are beautifully presented so make great gifts – small and light to fit into your luggage allowance.

See other blogpost for another store in this same small square is L’ Étrangère.

Beautiful handwoven scarves from Marrakech

beautiful handwoven scarves, made in Marrakech

On a walk on my way to the Maison de la Photographie (past the Le Foundouk restaurant), I came upon this small store–one of those hidden treasures in the medina of Marrakesh.  I noticed the delicately-woven scarves hanging outside – the kind that sell for hundreds of euros in Europe. So I went inside and found a couple of weavers hard at work with their wares artfully displayed. I was so taken by them, I immediately purchased two – and later went back for more. They make wonderful gifts, do not weigh much and hardly take any room in a suitcase.

The store is owned by Faissal Bennouna. He didn’t have the colour that I wanted so I asked him to make one for me, which he did in a couple of days.

Expect to pay between 250 and 450 dirhams.
