El Maarif

In the Maarif neighbourhood, located in the heart of Casablanca, you can find many internationally famous brands like Prada. If you are looking for designer clothes and accessories, this is a wonderful place for shopping.


Morocco is a paradise for anyone who is smitten by traditional home decor or souvenirs. Top choice is usually colourful geometric patterned carpets called kilims or shoedwi, predominately black and white. They are usually handmade and sold in the intimate shops that line alleyways around Boulevard Felix Houphouet Boigny or in the medinas. Ceramics and pottery, such as tagines, along with woven textiles gifts share popularity with carpets and can be found in most bazaars with dried fruit and spices. Note that when shopping, haggling is part of the tradition and the golden rule here is to take your time.
