A MARRAKECH SHOPPING TOUR - GUÉLIZ

A marrakech shopping tour - Guéliz

Today is Guéliz' day because we love that city district! It's all about that little French touch that we love so much. About art, design and style.

Guéliz ( the name comes from the French word Église, meaning church ) is along the big Avenue Mohamed V. When the weather is sunny but not too hot, it's a nice walk from the Médina all the way there. But remember you'll have some shopping to do and you might want to consider a taxi.

At about 11.30 We make time for that other gem, the carpet store of

Soufiane Zarib

. After this we head to Majorelle 33, a concept store packed with Moroccan design and adding new items every week. Today we ignore the Majorelle Garden as these are so much more beautiful on a bright and sunny morning. .  (if possible already around 9a.m.) When you do so, please take some extra time to visit all the other quality design stores that are all located around Rue Yves Saint Laurent.

Grand café de la Poste

is an option for me at any given moment a day! But the real art-deco, colonial spirit it reveals a night. Soft jazz Music, candle light, good service and good food. We said STYLE was our theme, no?

pottery, morocco,

Tamegroute pottery at my favourite shop

unrefined...

From an old farm house renovation where old inscriptions were treasured, to factory lofts where rusty lines on a brick wall dress the place and turn into art...

unrefined...

the beauty in what was once a happening in life. Time turns everything into beauty. It's up to you to discover it.

Enjoy!

5 COOLEST ADDRESSES IN THE MEDINA - Marrakech

cool designer shoppping Marrakech

About a year ago we spotted a new

trend

that was getting stronger. As a designer, it was again hip and a must do to show your brand in the Medina or Guéliz. We're talking Marrakech and we're talking about small, well designed stores that make a refreshing difference in the lined up '100 in a row' small shops.

These 5 addresses are a must on your shopping plan!

1) Master Carpet Collector and Designer

Soufiane Zarib

.

While most of the designers move back into the Medina, Soufiane made a smart move. Straight in front of the new Musée YSL! It's rather a beautiful window display on what he offers in one of his 3 places in the Medina but it is THE place to get the right customers and a good first impression. And of course we are not only talking about the carpets! Soufiane has a great eye and is perfectionist also when it comes to architecture.

Rue Yves St. Laurent Marrakech

2) WOOD WOOD WOOD

I happened to pass the shop on my way from the square towards to iron workers. It had always been there but they cleaned and redesigned so that every wooden handmade object looks 10 times more beautiful. The shop was kind of Moroccan closed and I have not more info yet. But you will easily find it!

3)

Le Trou au Mur

One of the few restaurants that managed to have everyone talking about it for a year before it opened!  Le Trou au Mur brings a breath of fresh air to the Marrakech restaurant scene. Chic, laid back, fun, relaxed, intimate and comfortable but, above all, totally serious about food.

Located in an authentic area it is absolutely an address to experience at night! The open fire place only adds to this in the coming months that can be cold in Marrakech. A perfect mix of Moroccan dishes 'new style' and European influences. Le Trou has an escort to take you to your transport or hotel if you feel more comfortable!!

39 Derb El Farnatchi Marrakech

4) Mourad Yamane's trendy design store

I am just blown away about the beautiful new and stylish walnut plates, the beautiful rattan baskets and the all natural design objects he has. Mourad already had a shop of Tamegroute Pottery next door and this is such a beautiful mix.

28 Rue Mouassine Marrakech. ( walk passing Le Fnacq Berbere when you come from the square. Just continue and on your right hand)

5)BIBI art

A newly opened store on carpets and collectors textiles. The shop in the 'Souk des Tapis' was no longer serving the beautiful selection and so they looked around and found a new address in one of the better areas.  Go and have a look! part of the collection is also on exposition in Musée de Mouessine

!

50 Rue Sidi El Yamani (straight ahead and on your right hand when you enter Bab Laksour
