Oh thank you, thank you, THANK YOU. We went to Marrakech a few years ago but our visit coincided with religious festival so never got to see the Souk de Teinture.... through your blog I have..... determined to get back there now!

Oh what a feast for the eyes. Those lovely red yarns against the blue of the sky, and the saffron fabrics straight from the dye pot I presume. Is there any special significance to the strings of brightly coloured fabric balls? They are delightful. You must go away more often!! Thankyou for sharing your wonderful photos.

Fancy organising a txtile lovers trip? I'd love to go...always have, not a traveller by nature but Morocco and Japan? That would be worth renewing my passport for! xx

Fantastic! So many wonderful images that it makes me want to leap on the next plane out. I am sure that I would be hopeless at bartering but it would be fantastic to have the opportunity.
