Snugly located by the main entrance of the Souk Ouarzazi and the Bab Ftouh arch is the Marrakech market of mirrors. Built like a miniature square, the tiny shops of the mirror market hug the corners around it’s centre in close proximity, giving the space a warm and intimate feel.
The mirrors found here takes on a huge variety of different forms and styles. You’ll find craftsmen using ancient Berber techniques to hand-chisel frames out of wood, alongside contemporary Moroccan-Arabic designs that favour tin, silver and copper as materials which are all shaped and decorated by hand.
The mirrors that deck the halls of our luxury Riad Hotels, as well as many others throughout the red city of Marrakech are all sourced from the mirror markets and others like it.
The skills used to create the mirrors of the red cities markets are wrought with secrecy and passed down through families, generation after generation. So you can be sure that a purchase made here for a loved one back home will be truly unique in it’s nature.
