Habous Quarter Food Market

Wellness rituals and products in Habous Market

Stroll through the Habous Quarter and you'll learn a lot about how Moroccans take care of body and soul.  From the neighborhood hammam, with its soaring dome, to the vendors selling natural cosmetics, or applying henna to hands and feet.  Recreate the Moroccan hammam experience in your own home by softening your skin in a warm bath then slathering on the traditional black soap before using the exfoliating mit to keep your skin healthy and soft. 

Carpets in Habous Market

While all the traditional Moroccan carpets can be found in the Habous Quarter in Casablanca, I found the Boucherrette carpets the most fun and interesting.  Made from cotton rags, the carpets use the traditional patterns that identify the region in which it is made, but the rags offer more vivid colors and, I think, give the artisans more license with their designs.
