Art D'Argile, Fes

#3 of 14 in Museums in Fes
Art Gallery · Hidden Gem · Museum
A highly esteemed manufacturer of traditional Moroccan ceramics, Art D'Argile offers a wide range of home decor and furniture, from kitchenware to dining tables and fountains. The shop features a factory and a workshop that has formed more than four generations of artists. Skilled artisans here spend hours working on one piece. Learn about "zelige," the art of making geometric mosaics from hand-chiseled tiles painted with traditional glazes, or try your hand at the pottery wheel. Note that prices here may be slightly higher compared to souks; expect a hard sales pitch at the end of the tour.

Prices in the store are higher than normal, but the quality control is better, and prices are usually 30%-40% off ever day. :-)
  • very high prices! The average plate costs 400 dirham, in another place its price is 100 dirham, while you can bargain for a lower price.
