21 Undyed Leather Merchant in Marrakech, Morocco

Aficionados of leather will be enthralled with the souks in Marrakech. Follow your nose – literally – towards the smelly tanneries to see how hides are soaked in lime, then cured in bird excrement and colored in dye before drying. Merchants like this one sell bolts of undyed leather primarily to local craftsmen. Countless other vendors offer a dizzying display of finished goods such as handbags, belts and clothes. The best price comes through unrelenting bargaining. But also purchase away from other tourists and while wearing nothing flashy or expensive.
