Street Scenes: Carpet Sellers Essaouira Morocco

The ancient port city of Essaouira located on the Atlantic coast of Morocco is an ideal place to purchase Moroccan handicrafts. The variety and quality of goods is excellent and the shopping experience is much more laid back than in Morocco’s large cities.

It would take tremendous willpower to walk by this display of carpets without stopping to take a look. Which one would you pick?
