Marrakesh Shopping

Leather Souks

  • Outdoor/Flea/Green Markets

Updated 09/03/2014

Fodor's Review

At the northeastern edges of the souk (just beyond the northern end of the main Rue Souk el Kebir) are the leatherworkers—busy cutting out templates for babouches, hammering and polishing, and making up bags and satchels from several types of animal skins. Look for signs to the Souk des Sachochiers (bag makers), Souk Chairia, and Souk Cherratine, all leather-working areas. The tanneries, where the raw hides have been prepared and dyed, are some 20 minutes walk farther northeast from Souk Cherratine along Rue Bab Debbagh. Also in the northeast are a range of instruments, especially drums (Souk Moulay aii) and woven baskets (Souk Serrajine).
