Event Description

Discover the highlights of Morocco, the indigenous Amazigh/Berber culture and extraordinary textile traditions on this fascinating tour.

We’ll visit women’s cooperatives that combine age-old skills with new innovations. In Marrakesh we'll enjoy the exquisite Yves Saint Laurent museum featuring his fashion designs as well as the Berber Museum that houses the Moroccan textiles and jewellery that inspired his work.

Following the ancient trade routes across the High Atlas Mountains to the Sahara we find weavers of carpet and cloth and traditional embroiderers in these remote locations, where they still employ their skills and maintain their traditional lifestyle. Add to this the Imperial city of Fez, the ‘blue city’ of Chefchaouen and the capital Rabat.

The tour includes hands-on experiences and demonstrations with local artisans as well as hand-sewing workshops with our accompanying textile expert, Karin Hellaby.
