The Colors of Morocco


Red terracotta is the color of the imperial city of Marrakech. The Majorelle Garden houses green and cobalt. Argan trees bear golden fruits in the Sous valley. And in the magical Chefchaouen, mesmerizing shades of blue permeate everything.  

Morocco has an abundance of colors, patterns, and textures to satiate our eyes. It is a melting pot of many cultures intertwined - Moorish, Berber, Arabic, Andalusian, and Spanish - giving birth to the splendid art of painting, pottery, textiles, metalwork, and architecture.
