Vibrant Colors straight from Mother Nature
The tanneries in Fez and Marrakech are famous for the brilliant colors and assortment of hides. Despite the awful stench from the tanning process (which is counteracted by holding a bunch of mint close to your nose) the colors and variety of hides is breathtaking – if you will pardon the pun. Vegetable dyes such as saffron (yellow), mint (green), poppy flower (red), indigo (blue), henna (orange), and cedar wood (brown) are used to create these gorgeous hues.
