Stop At: Maison du Caftan, 65 Rue Sidi el Yamani, Marrakesh 40000, Morocco

Worn throughout the world, the kaftan (caftan) has long held a coveted fashion as well as cultural status. However in Morocco it enjoys a special significance. The dress is worn exclusively by women, both as an everyday outfit and haute-couture attire —depending on the material. The Culture Trip presents a history of one of Morocco’s clothing staples.
The first mention of the kaftan in Morocco appeared in the 16th century, although the kaftan had been worn across the Middle East and Persia long before this time. It was during the reign of the Abbassides that the garment made its way to Andalusia in the ninth century, the Western Islamic region that was eventually ruled by the Moroccan Berber Almohad dynasty. Following the Spanish Inquisition, resulting in the forced conversion to Christianity or expulsion of Muslims and Jews from Andalusia, many residents fled to nearby Morocco, bringing their traditional attire with them. And the materials required–silk thread and fine fabrics—were produced to create the rich textiles.

Stop At: Women's Museum - Marrakech, 19 Rue Sidi Abdel Aziz Souk Jeld, Marrakech 40030 Morocco

he first cultural initiative of this kind in North Africa, the Women’s Museum in Marrakech aims to present and to preserve the culture of Moroccan women.

The museum first opened its doors in September 2018, in the heart of the Ochre City’s medina – in the Sidi Abdelaziz quarter – close to the Ben Youssef mosque and medersa, the Almoravid Qubba, and also next to the Dar Bellarj cultural foundation. Thanks to this ideal location for the museum, Moroccan women and their achievements are well surrounded and can thus receive the interest they deserve from the public.
The museum also offers a space for contemporary artists (painters, poets, photographers and so on) to express themselves – with the goal being to help them to develop.
This place pays tribute to ALL women: to the woman of influence who has made a name for herself as much as the homemaker who has remained unknown.
Although Morocco has seen a male elite do well, it has also given birth to a female elite who have contributed to the country's deve.
