On a recent trip to Marrakech, I found myself exploring deep within the souk for interior treasures and when we came across one of the most unbelievable rug shops I have ever seen.  To me it was rug heaven and the process of  buying the rugs was such an experience …. first we all took off our shoes and walked around barefoot on each rug to feel the thickness of the wool, then we sipped on homemade mint tea while four very eager young men rolled out carpet after carpet to show us the various (stunning) patterns and styles.  I included below some of my pics from this awesome shopping event and wait until you see the rooftop terrace…. AMAZING!
