The traditional Babouche

The Babouche is a traditional slipper found throughout the Arab-Muslim world. Usually made from leather and found in a variety of colours. The Babouche comes in various styles ranging from thick soled slippers. It is often worn by locals both in the Medina and in the new town. There are also more thin soled slippers designed for indoor wear.

Both styles are available for sale throughout Marrakech from the Souks to the Artisane ensemble. Although the Babouche is a very comfortable shoe and would make a great souvenir or gift, we suggest that maybe you choose sturdier footwear whilst walking around the Medina.
