Tangier

Things to do in Tangier

The go-to place for carpets.

Otherwise known as the Weaver's Market, feral cats and vendors selling hangers are mixed with vendors who sell to Barneys New York.

The shop is full of exquisite embroidered table linens.

The Art Deco cinema was saved by local artists in the community as part of a larger effort to save Tangier's historic buildings.

An excellent store for antique finds.

A great market for babouche slippers.

Among the oldest and most famous parfumerie in the Muslim world.

A market of straw furniture and baskets; custom orders welcome.

Goods spill out along the seemingly endless miles of rough sidewalk: everything from incredibly inexpensive tin lanterns ready to be repurposed as lamps and antique tubs that can be turned into tables to—legend has it—smaller accessories stamped dunhill or hermès.

The owners provide Perrier shoppers troll the endless array of carpets, most of them ridiculously underpriced at around $300. Make sure you measure your rooms at home before making the trip.

The ambience may be initially inauspicious, but inside, the goods, culled from all over the country, are cheap and first-rate: spice holders, hand-painted cups from Fez, inlaid boxes, miniature teapots, and more.
