As a curiosity, we can comment that for centuries, Andalusian architecture has been built with the basic idea of relaxing people in palaces or houses. For them, the most important thing was aesthetics and they did everything so that the eye of the beholder was not disturbed. Light is very important in the Arab world. They try to make beautiful lamps that illuminate well but do not make light too aggressive.
The "maroquin" is a goat or lamb skin prepared with sumac or galls. It is used to make decorative objects, clothing or books because it is very resistant and pleasant to the touch. Leather is a specialty of Moroccan crafts.
This tradition has its roots in the culture of large cities such as Marrakech, Rabat, Fez and Meknes. Today, entire cities are dedicated to working with leather and Moroccan artisans offer the most beautiful works of art in the purest Moroccan tradition.
When the subtlety of tanning artisans joins the artistic touch of painters, unusual works of art are born that will beautify your home with an original and 100% artisanal touch.
