La Maison du Kaftan Marocain, Souk

La Maison du Kaftan Marocain, Souk

The widest choice of caftans in the whole of Marrakech, although at first glance this hardly looks like the most attractive store in the city. It's slightly dusty and has the characteristic musty smell of a second-hand shop - it's somewhat hard to believe that once in a while people from the top fashion houses visit this place for a spot of industrial espionage.

Visited: March 2007

I was shopping for an elegant, simple and comfortable evening outfit when I was referred to this shop. There I found a most beautiful black silk crepe djellaba pant suit trimmed in elaborate but clean yellow gold, both the top and pant. It's simplicity is timeless and has worked well for many occasions back stateside in California as well as return visits to Morocco. The dejllaba is of highest quality craftsmanship and I was able to negotiate a fair price for the outfit. I am of a little under average height and on the plump side but the clothes the shopkeeper had me try on looked like they were made to fit. The silk flows gently to fully flatter my figure and is the most comfortable evening wear I own! I love it and truly enjoyed my experience in the shop with my new Moroccan friends.
