Mohamed is the owner, and is usually found sitting at his desk in the second, smaller room. Prices are not marked, but there is no haggling here. Just ask Mohamed for the price.
When you think you’ve seen everything, look up and notice the lanterns and chandeliers hanging from the ceiling in a multitude of colours, then look for the staircase that leads up to the second floor where larger furniture items are to be found.
Maison d’Artisanat Export is a growing business. Every few months Mohamed finds a way to add another room that didn’t seem to exist before, it’s like a rabbit warren extending deep into the neighbourhood.
This won’t always be the cheapest shop in town, but the quality of the products and range of choice is undisputed. It’s also a completely hassle free experience, you can come and browse in peace, even if just for the pleasure of the eyes, as they say here, and no one will bat an eyelid if you leave without purchasing anything.
Maison d’Artisanat Export accepts payment by Visa and Mastercard.
Maison d’Artisanat Export is located at 70, Bab Taghzout, a couple of doors down from the bakery (boulangerie), Le Pain Quotidien.
