    natural scent paste

    by EviP Updated Feb 4, 2014
    moroccan natural scent block bar

    at the Rissani souk - flea market

    What to buy: Naturally scented block bars
    They look like soap bars, and in Rissani, there are plenty of natural fragrances to choose from, for men and women, at the least expensive prices
    My favourite scents are amber and musk, but there are more....
    The Moroccans use them as deodorant & perfume on the body, as it does not contain alcohol, it does not spoil with the heat
    but also, they keep a piece in the drawers to freshen and scent clothes and linen.

    they last...forever!

    What to pay: depending on the size/weight of the tube - they sell it by the gram, from 3 to 6 euros for a small piece.

    Maison Touareg: Local craft and interesting exhibition

    by sachara Written Apr 30, 2008
    Maison Touareg
    4 more images

    On our way from Erg Chebbi back to Rissani we made a stop at Maison Touareg, just before we entered the town. It looked like we were the only visitors. We got a lot of information about all the local items which were exhibited in the courtyard, like pottery, furniture and ceremonial items.

    What to buy: There is the usual local craft for sale, like carpets, pottery and jewellery. I am always looking for Tuareg products like leather bags, jewellery, tent poles and lots of other stuff. A pity, I didn't find anything here to enlarge my collection at home.

    What to pay: You have always to bargain for the price, like a berber.... or like a tuareg !

    Going to the souq and market

    Spices at the market
    1 more image

    In the souq and at the market of Rissani you can buy almost everything from food to clothes. I always stroll and look around in the souqs and at the markets just to get an idea of the local products.

    What to buy: At the Rissani market I bought some spices to bring home. This time my choice was some of the mixed spices. The marketstalls with the spices and herbs are always very colourful, so was this one.

    What to pay: It depends on your bargain qualities.

    I do not recall the name of that shop: Camel-bags / sacks

    by globetrott Written Nov 14, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You may get carpets and kilims at almost any place in Maroc - but I was looking for something special

    What to buy: " Camel Bags " - " Sac á Camel " - was the expression I used when I asked for them, and mostly had to explain also, what I meant - and for the staff of shops it only had a arabic-name, that I could not remember

    What to pay: I payed around 50 $ for 1 of the bags - in 1990 - the size was about 1,40 meter x 1,20 meter
