Al Nour has wonderful textiles, embroideries, linens, silk, cashmere... I could have bought many, many things at this store-- alas, it is pricey. If you are able and willing to pay what are basically European or North American prices for a special piece, it is a good place to go. In any case, it is worthwhile checking out the store and marveling at the nice pieces and materials. Al Nour is a company that trains handicapped women in language and artisan skills and presumably pays the women a fair wage. Employment provides access to health care and pensions. It was tempting to pay the higher price thinking that it is for a good cause, However, I ended up spending some money at AL KAWTAR, the non-profit women's collective that basically pursues the some mission as Al Nour.

I came to this shop by accident while touring the old medina in Marrakech. Once in, you notice that the quality and items stand out of the norms available in all around shops. Top quality needle work and very neat designs. I highly recommend shopping at Al Nour for your gifts or for your home. The NGO's cause is admirable too.

The merchandise they sell is high quality and stylish. It is mostly textiles such as table linens, apparel and baby items. They are embellished with tasteful creative embroidery. I wish they sent a stronger message about their mission to help support handicapped women. From the outside it isn't really advertised. It is pricier that most of the merchandise in the medina, but definitely worth it!

In the heart of Marrakech you can find this small social enterprise just off of the Medina. This architecture has a slight modern European feel and is surprising clean while decorated with beautiful textiles of different embroidered clothing and more. Watching the talented ladies, who happen to be physically handicapped, beautifully craft and embroider was amazing to witness. I even bought a handbag and a silk dress! As I learned more about the women, it was great to know that my purchase was helping these women in a variety of ways such as having a day care for their children and provide health care. I have been and will continue to recommend this shop to anyone who's traveling to Marrakech to stop by and take a look at this beautiful and unique shop!

The Al Nour store is a wonderful experience. It is small but has a great selection of on site handmade clothing. The clothing is beautiful and colorful. The employees were lovely to interact with and were very helpful in my search for the right clothes in the right sizes. Furthermore, the employees making the clothing were lovely and welcoming to me and my tour as we learned about the organization. Truly a great experience
