i will admit that i went to morocco in order to be inspired design-wise by every object. instead, i found a lot of the objects were junk and had become mass-produced due to tourism and other such reasons. however, i found what i was looking for in the tile and woodwork that can be found in any of the great buildings, but also in the randomness of places… the communal fountain that you you would see people washing in, the forgotten door at the end of an alleyway, the ceiling of a hammam. here are a few patterns i found.
there was one store that we stumbled into which did carry beautifully embroidered clothing and stunning bead work… only to find out that it was owned by a french man, go figure. anyways, they carry home products as well as clothing and they have a website. if you find yourself in morocco you should discover it too.
