Shopping in Essaouira


Finally some pics from the old town in essaouira, which was honestly hands down one of the best shopping experiences I've ever come across. It was amazing - every little shop was filled with treasure-like pieces.. packed with inspiring prints and designs. Shoes, bags, jewellery - all hand made, all so insanely gorgeous I ended up going back three times. Still stuck with a feeling I left half of it undiscovered... A few very good days
