Fodor's Review

Walk through a nondescript passageway into a classic 19th-century riad and you'll find the Coopérative Artisanale des Marqueteurs, whose members have been turning out finely decorated boxes, ornaments, tables, and other furniture since 1948. Everything has a tag with the artisan's code number and reasonable fixed prices. At the end of the month, the craftsmen collect their income and a small proportion goes to the upkeep of the building and the running of the co-op. You won't find tour groups here as there is no commission for guides, making it a tranquil place to stop and admire decades of craftsmanship.
