Latest Buying Trip

Inside Morocco co-proprietor Janet Belchamber has returned from our most recent Moroccan buying trip. On her travels she visited Fez, Midelt, the Atlas Mountains, the Sahara Desert, Ouzarzate, Marrakech and Essaouira. Below are some highlights of her trip and sneak peeks at the exciting new homewares Inside Morocco are expecting in early March 2009. Contact us if you would like to go on our mailing list, be notified of the container arrival and invited to our 'Preview Party'!

Fez Medina

A souk which is also a covered market in Fez. Of special interest to Inside Morocco is raffia basketware, these hand woven products have proven themselves to be versatile, hardwearing and have recently become very fashionable. In addition to our current stock of various tote style shopping bags and placemats, we have large tajine shaped bread baskets arriving by air any day. Look out in store or ask to be added to our mailing list for regular updates of events, sales and new arrivals!

Feature Lighting at Riad Dar D'mana

Janet particularly adored this fretwork and frosted glass pendant in the Riad Dar D'mana it's one of a selection that illuminate the accommodation communal areas. Note the stunning cutwork plaster detail that frames the cedar doors beyond.

Riad Dar D'mana, Fez

This view shows the walkway surrounding the once outdoor courtyard. Note the intricate hand painted timber work and delicate carving on the balustrades.  

Janet rated this accommodation very highly (you can see her complete review on or contact Inside Morocco for details of our personalised travel itinerary service based on our extensive knowledge of accommodation and travel in all areas of Morocco. 

Painted Furniture in Riad Dar D'mana

Riad Dar D'mana features some exquisite painted timber furniture within the accommodation areas. This view shows one of a pair of bedside tables.

Remember Inside Morocco can source custom furniture to your requirements in your preferred colourway. Contact us in store for details!

Fez at Dusk

Ousted, our own dedicated Moroccan buyer took Janet up onto a local school roof in Bab'f 'touch for this fantastic view of Fez at dusk.

Dar Batha Museum, Place Du Batha, Fez

The Dar Batha Museum is a hispano-moorish palace which dates back to the 19th century. It is open to tourists and offers an extensive history of art in Fez. This impressive walkway with a stunning painted timber ceiling surrounds a vast outdoor courtyard featuring beautiful zelij fountains and narrow pathways...

Serghini Pottery, Fez

One of Inside Morocco's many suppliers who always offer a wide range of innovative high quality handmade pottery. Look out in store our new black and white range of Serghini platters, bowls and plates and for samples of our handpicked ranges of plain and patterned ceramic tiles due early March 2009!

Marble Fountain

New to Inside Morocco, the marble detailed fountain in this view, available to order in any type of fountain, the marble allows for the fountain to be constructed in fibreglass making it lighter to transport and install!

Remember Inside Morocco is happy to arrange purchase and shipping of various bespoke ceramics and urns. Contact us in store if you would like further details of anything that you have seen in this blog!


This view shows a small part of our djellebah suppliers range! Djellebahs are perfect for brides who want a touch of the exotic or to be unique.

Tannery, Fez

This is a view of the dyeing vats of one of Inside Morocco's leather and wool suppliers. These dyes use natural ingredients to produce their highly vivid colour range. After dyeing the leather hides and rugs are laid out in the sun to dry, depending on the weather this can take weeks...

Carpentry Quarter near Bab Guissa, Fez

Donkeys are the main mode of transport for negotiating narrow and winding Moroccan Medina's and Souks. The donkeys shown here are in the carpentry quarter of Bab Guissa laden with building bricks. At Inside Morocco we source many of our mousharabiya products such as mirror frames and architectural screens and arches from this area.

Antique Metalwork

Janet photographed this antique metalwork for sale in the Fez medina, Moroccan metalwork tends to include an array of jewish symbols because of its mainly jewish heritage. This serving ware would likely be used in Morocco for sweets and breads at a special occasion such as a wedding.

Maison Berbere, Midelt

This rug supplier is ideally located in Midelt to source rugs for Inside Morocco from the Middle and High Atlas Mountains. We particularly like the intricate Glaoui style of cut and loop pile carpets. Look out in store for our range of Glaoui, Kilim and silk blend style rugs and wall hangings. Remember our newest selections will be arriving early in March 2009!

Kasbah Timbouctou, Merzouga

Janet also stayed in this high quality, but reasonably priced resort located at the base of the Sahara dunes. It is one of three located around Morocco. It features a pool, hammam, bar and camel treks into the Sahara Desert. The accommodation ranges from a berber tent encampment on the edge of the dunes through to stunning suites. If you would like details of Kasbah Timbouctou contact Inside Morocco and we will be happy to arrange your stay!

New Marble Products

Inside Morocco can now offer quality Moroccan marble products to order including basins, vanities, bench tops, floor tiles and wine racks available in a variety of shades. Colour samples will be arriving in store in early March 2009.

Boulmane Du Dades, Dades Gorge

Janet stayed in accommodation at the Boulmane Du Dades five star resort at the base of the High Atlas Mountains. It features its own pool, hammam, bar and buffet dining and conference facilities. Janet was particularly taken by the architecture and stunning views. If you would like further details of Boulmane Du Dades contact Inside Morocco and we will be happy to arrange your stay!


Janet photographed this lantern by the pool at Boulmane Du Dades. These and all other lighting requirements including wall sconces, pendants and table lamps can be purchased or ordered through Inside Morocco. Visit us in store to view the complete range!

Zelij Design at Boulmane du Dades

Zelij is the name given to a pattern that is made from handmade tiles which are hand chiselled into precise geometric shapes. In Morocco Zelij is most commonly used for decorating fountains, walls, floors and table tops.

The pattern on this zelij table was especially designed for the Boulmane du Dades resort near the Dades Gorge.
