Having lived in Marrakech for over ten years, there are not many things that I have left undiscovered or experienced. However, I recently came across one such place.
Riad Yima, owned by artist Hasan Hajjaj, is situated within the Medina, in the south of the souk. Off the beaten track, it is certainly worth searching out! This Riad is not only a boutique and tea room, it is an art gallery that inspires an eco lifestyle.
There is a boutique where you can purchase clothing & fashion items, as well as furniture and interior accessories made from recycled materials. A riot of colour with strong African as well as Moroccan influences, you cannot help but feel uplifted in this environment. What better way to raise your spirits than by wearing some African print babouches or a tote made from re-cycled flour bags?!
An artist in his own right, Hassan Hajjaj was accepted to exhibit at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition this year. How fortunate are we to have him in Marrakech!
I suggest that you take tea whilst there, to give yourself time to mull over your purchases!
