Anybody want anything from Morocco? Tuesday, 02 December 2008 3:17am

I understand that it's very hard to leave without a carpet. And as long as I'm going to end up with one, might as well bring back a few...

Things that would be really useful to know, if you'd like a carpet:

  • how big?
  • how expensive? The LP thinks they start from 400 dirhams ($45 today) for small, flat-woven rugs to 2000 dirhams ($228) per square meter for the intricately patterned deep-pile ones
  • what kinds of colors or patterns? flickr has some examples

My preference is for something predominantly red and black, low pile, in the neighborhood of 4 square meters. I presume most of the rugs will be approximate Golden rectangles.
