La boutique Ben Rahal, Marrakech :
Les plus beaux tapis des tribus marocaines sont rassemblés dans cette boutique pour connaisseurs. Loin des attrape-touristes qui vendent des reproductions, le propriétaire des lieux se fait un plaisir de raconter l’histoire de ce kilim des années 80 ou la signification des motifs sur ce beni ouarain des années 70.

The best cities around the world for specialist shops and shopping

In the Guéliz section of the new city you’ll find Ben Rahal (28 Rue de la Liberté), a shop dedicated to rugs. The small space is filled with carpets, each selected for its exceptional quality. You’ll pay a bit more, but it’s worth every penny.
