ESSAOUIRA
The Craftsmen


Essaouira

The wood is thuja, and Essaouira is the main centre of wood carcers in Morocco. Wood carving is divided into two main skills, shaping of everything from pencil holders to heavy bureaus, and creation of wood mosaics and painted or burnt patterns, which often are inevitable parts of first.
After the wood items are ready, they are oiled, in order to get their dark brown colour and a delicious scent, which you soon will be able to recognize smell out from the carvers' shops.
