Marrakech Photo Essay – The Dyer’s Souk
There are many souks within the walls of the world-famous Marrakech medina. One of the most colourful and interesting alleyways that you can get lost in is the dyer’s souk. This part of bazaar is draped with material and yarn hanging from the wooden rafters that block out the harsh sun. Moroccan sellers bustle and hustle tempting tourists in to the souk to share in their knowledge of the dying process (and of course buy some of their wares!):
I recommend finding this souk should you find yourselves pounding the streets of Marrakech’s traditional bazaar, just be ready to handle the haggle!

Delightful photographs of the dyer’s souk. So colourful and intense. I particularly like the close-ups of details.
Thank you! It was a pretty intense place too – glad some of that came across.
Fascinating images of an ancient craft – well captured!
