i am from tangier,i when to school around the northern part of morocco,  started from Beni Boufrah ,and ended in Tangier .so i can speak of the north part of morocco, i can not assume the same for southern parts of the country.

not long ago in the city of tetuan ,as a college student,we were able to survive nicely  on around $100.00 a month,that includes transportation,rent and meals .city of martil 1989-1993.

Eco-Friendly Cactus straw baskets wholesale

cactus (plural: cacticactuses, or cactus)[3] is a member of the plant family Cactaceae,a family comprising about 127 genera with some 1750 known species of the order Caryophyllales.[4] The word “cactus” derives, through Latin, from the Ancient Greek κάκτοςkaktos, a name originally used by Theophrastus for a spiny plant whose identity is not certain.[5] Cacti occur in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Most cacti live in habitats subject to at least some drought. Many live in extremely dry environments, even being found in the Atacama Desert, one of the driest places on earth. Cacti show many adaptations to conserve water. Almost all cacti are succulents, meaning they have thickened, fleshy parts adapted to store water. Unlike many other succulents, the stem is the only part of most cacti where this vital process takes place. Most species of cacti have lost true leaves, retaining only spines, which are highly modified leaves. As well as defending against herbivores, spines help prevent water loss by reducing air flow close to the cactus and providing some shade. In the absence of leaves, enlarged stemscarry out photosynthesis. Cacti are native to the Americas, ranging from Patagonia in the south to parts of western Canada in the north—except for Rhipsalis baccifera, which also grows in Africa and Sri Lanka.

Cactus spines are produced from specialized structures called areoles, a kind of highly reduced branch. Areoles are an identifying feature of cacti. As well as spines, areoles give rise to flowers, which are usually tubular and multipetaled. Many cacti have short growing seasons and long dormancies, and are able to react quickly to any rainfall, helped by an extensive but relatively shallow root system that quickly absorbs any water reaching the ground surface. Cactus stems are often ribbed or fluted, which allows them to expand and contract easily for quick water absorption after rain, followed by long drought periods. Like other succulent plants, most cacti employ a special mechanism called “crassulacean acid metabolism” (CAM) as part of photosynthesis. Transpiration, during which carbon dioxide enters the plant and water escapes, does not take place during the day at the same time as photosynthesis, but instead occurs at night. The plant stores the carbon dioxide it takes in as malic acid, retaining it until daylight returns, and only then using it in photosynthesis. Because transpiration takes place during the cooler, more humid night hours, water loss is significantly reduced.

Many smaller cacti have globe-shaped stems, combining the highest possible volume for water storage, with the lowest possible surface area for water loss from transpiration. The tallest[Note 2] free-standing cactus is Pachycereus pringlei, with a maximum recorded height of 19.2 m (63 ft),[6] and the smallest is Blossfeldia liliputiana, only about 1 cm (0.4 in) in diameter at maturity.[7] A fully grown saguaro (Carnegiea gigantea) is said to be able to absorb as much as 200 U.S. gallons (760 l; 170 imp gal) of water during a rainstorm.[8] A few species differ significantly in appearance from most of the family. At least superficially, plants of the genus Pereskia resemble other trees and shrubs growing around them. They have persistent leaves, and when older, bark-covered stems. Their areoles identify them as cacti, and in spite of their appearance, they, too, have many adaptations for water conservation. Pereskia is considered close to the ancestral species from which all cacti evolved. In tropical regions, other cacti grow as forest climbers and epiphytes (plants that grow on trees). Their stems are typically flattened, almost leaf-like in appearance, with fewer or even no spines, such as the well-known Christmas cactus or Thanksgiving cactus (in the genus Schlumbergera).

Cacti have a variety of uses: many species are used as ornamental plants, others are grown for fodder or forage, and others for food (particularly their fruit). Cochineal is the product of an insect that lives on some cacti.

Many succulent plants in both the Old and New World, such as some Euphorbiaceae (euphorbias), bear a striking resemblance to cacti, and may incorrectly be called “cactus” in common usage. (Wk)

The story of poof is a story of Moroccan home decor.only the best vegatbles dyed leather is used.

 Morocco leather (also Levant Morocco or the French Maroquin,[ or German Saffian from Safi a Moroccan town famous for leather, or from Middle Persian Saxtag Modern Persian سختگ) is a soft, pliable form of leather widely used for gloves and the uppers of ladies’ shoes and men’s low cut shoes, but traditionally associated with bookbindings, wallets, linings for fine luggage, and the like.

Originally Morocco leather was imported to Europe from Morocco, and from the late 16th century it was valued in luxury bookbindings in Western countries because of its strength and because it showed off the gilding. It was also used in the Islamic world from an earlier date.

The finest grades of Morocco leather are goat skin, but by the late 19th century other skins often were substituted in practice, particularly sheep skin and split calf skins. For example, French Morocco, is a variety made of sheepskin.[2] The tanning process varied widely, but the traditional tanning material was sumac. The traditional tanning process was skilled and elaborate; according to the application, the preparation either would aim for a carefully smoothed finish, or would bring up the grain in various patterns such as straight-grained, pebble-grained, or in particular, in a bird’s-eye pattern. Morocco leather is practically always dyed, traditionally most often red or black, but green, brown or other colors also were available, and in modern times there is no special constraint on colors.

The Poof market has seen a spike in demand the last few years. Driven by exports as well as the local demand .Moroccan leather goods,suppliers. tanneries in craftsman all benefited from the surge .

 Morocco LeatherWholesale Various High Quality Morocco Leather Products from  Morocco. Leather Suppliers and Morocco Leather Factory,Importer are really located in 4 cities in Morocco, and Casablanca is not one of them.

Is Morocco safe for female travelers?

Travelling to other country is always hard.

Travelling to a country as Morocco can be even more mysterious.

Our guests at made in morocco bazaar,who are visiting Morocco for the first time.either for business of leas-sure .the questions to our North american countries,it was different from packing to Paris.Barcelona or London.

Let me start by saying this.There are millions of tourists that visit every year. many of the are womenMorocco is as safe for a woman to visit as any other country. There are some general precautions and common sense to keep in mind. but the rules are similar.

Even as a native of Morocco,they are some places i will be crazy to even dress in shorts.at least at my age.It is always good to be dressed according to where you intending to be .dress modestly in popular places.

However if you going to the beach.Go naked if you wish .but if you are wondering a kesbah ,markets ,a jeans ,and T shirts are fitting within.

Taxis in Morocco are generally crime-free, although city buses are really considered safe. Trains are generally safe, and so are Moroccan center cities and tourists areas.

while Morocco is different from one city to another.some cities are more conservative than others.some are more liberal than San Francisco.

I am from Tangier.  Tangier is very safe and peaceful city The only trouble you may encounter is the persistent touts whom you should ignore, and mobile Merchants  ready to overcharge you.  Tangier is considered one of the more moderate cities of Morocco and it is quite normal and acceptable to see foreign women all alone .

Spain after all is 7 miles away,and if you worry being blonde is the issue,just wear a Barcelona shirts.and you will have more fan than you ever realized,and that you never met.

Tangier is fun.Cute,Loaded with history.full of tasty restaurants .you just need to take your time around .most recommended you stay in the Old Medina .a small Riyad can be found for as low as $25 .00 night .with $20.00 expect to eat like King ,if you know what you are going ,that will include fresh squeesed jouce,tea,or coffee,eggs,bread,cheese and the best olive oil on earth.

Ask for Zit Lwazania grade at least .

Tangier tourist areas are centered around the beach. Marsa,so if you are just a visitor .more likely you will end up staying in an area of about 6 miles long and 1 miles deep into land .

If you pass that,everything in term of prices automatically goes down by more than 50%

Example.Full breakfast(yummy) in Hotel Riff.$7.00

Coffee Hamadi.Vasabarata $2.00(Yummier)

you getting the idea.of course some places are highly discouraged from going alone , without a local friend .or guide you can trust to guide you into the real Morocco,the beautiful Morocco,the Beautiful Tangier,the best part that most tourists miss by choosing to stay within the Zone.while it is a great step.the greater step is going to places like Riff region .Chefchwen is a greeting sample to what to expect when you keep driving east.all the way to Alhoceima .all covered by the most beautiful landscape and welcoming  people.that each will greed you with a shy smile.or a big couscous meal.

These been our partners,reliable welcoming and hospitable.driving from Tangier going east.Not south.Relax In martil for a day observe the Spanish and Moorish marriages and years of wars and corporations.in the walls,building,people faces.Food.and even skin and eye colors.

Dont miss to visit my favorite restaurant. Abu AAmira.and best sub sandwiches @abdesalam.the good news they are next to each other .

Abu AAmira have my favorites .Soup. Harrira. Couscous.and a lof of Fresh fish.these are the same people i used and still use since my days in school started in 1989.both still thriving.a wondrful meal that might cost you in NY or London $80.00 can be  had for $8.00 or less .

If you have a thirst for knowledge and you loved the city enough.Visit Abdelmalek saadi university ,and ask about my teacher Ben AAboud ,PHD professor,between Granada Spain and Martil,No matter what is your language,you will be understood.

If you are like me , and you heard about Ketama ,and you anxious to get there ,i dont blame you either.you will feel High like you are in Switzerland winter time.white snow,and pine trees.

Tarquist is a mid town between Tetuan and Alhoceima ,the winters are cold and harsh.you will found hotels ,good restaurants,and buses going different directions .

My direction was always toward Beni Boufrah.Aounout.the only market on earth i ever see that designated for women only was here ,Souk Tlat .a weekly market only women merchants and shoppers are  allowed in  .

Pure Argan oil origins,use,myths, and truth.

,

When i first left Morocco in 1989 for a long period of time. Nobody asked me about Argan Oil. Today.anywhere i go, among the first things people ask me about is Argan Oil.thanks to my Fes.The fruit of the argan tree is small, and round, oval, or conical.A thick peel covers the fleshy pulp. The pulp surrounds a hard-shelled nut that represents about 25% of the weight of the fresh fruit.

HOME

 

3 Kilo Argan soap bar ,

The nut contains one to three oil-rich argan kernels. Extraction yields from 30% to 50% of the oil in the kernels, depending on the extraction method.

Extraction is key to the production process.

To extract the kernels, workers first dry argan fruit in the open air and then remove the fleshy pulp.

Some producers remove the flesh mechanically without drying the fruit. Moroccans usually use the flesh as animal feed.

There is a tradition, in some areas of Morocco, of allowing goats to climb argan trees to feed freely on the fruits.

The kernels are then later retrieved from the goat droppings, considerably reducing the labor involved in extraction at the expense of some potential gustatory aversion.

In modern practice the peels are removed by hand.

The next stage involves cracking the argan nut to obtain the argan kernels.

Attempts to mechanize this process have been unsuccessful, so workers still do it by hand, making it a time-consuming, labor-intensive process. Berber women often engage in this arduous task.

 

 

 

Workers gently roast kernels they will use to make culinary argan oil.Purple argan soap Bar.

After the argan kernels cool, workers grind and press them. The brown-colored mash expels pure, unfiltered argan oil. Finally, they decant unfiltered argan oil into vessels. The remaining press cake is protein-rich and frequently used as cattle feed.White Agran Soap Bar 3 kilos

Cosmetic argan oil is produced almost identically, though the argan kernels are not roasted to avoid an excessively nutty scent.

Mix colors large Argan soap bars

The decanted argan oil is left to rest about two weeks so that solids suspended in the argan oil settle to the bottom. The clearer argan oil is further filtered, depending on the required clarity and purity. Pure argan oil may contain some sidemen

Argan oil uses ranges from medicine culinary and cosmetics .

Cosmetic

Moroccans traditionally use un-roasted Argan oil to treat skin diseases, and as a cosmetic oil for skin and hair.[10]

Argan oil has become increasingly popular for cosmetic use. The number of personal-care products on the US market with Argan oil as an ingredient increased from just two in 2007 to over 100 by 2011. Argan oil is also sold without additives as a natural skincare and hair care product.

The increasing popularity of Argan oil has prompted the Moroccan government to plan for increased production, with their aim being to increase annual production from around 2,500 to 4,000 tonnes by 2020.

Culinary

Culinary argan oil (argan food oil) is used for dipping bread, on couscous, salads and similar uses. Amlou, a thick brown paste with a consistency similar to peanut butter, is produced by grinding roasted almond and argan oil using stones, mixed with honey and is used locally as a bread dip.

Various claims about the beneficial effects on health due to the consumption of argan oil have been made. A research article published in 2010 found that argan oil contained higher levels than other oils of γ-Tocopherol, which possesses strong chemo preventive and anti-inflammatory properties.

 

.

The production of argan oil has always had a socioeconomic function. At present, argan oil production supports about 2.2 million people in the main argan oil-producing region, the Arganeraie.

Much of the argan oil produced today is made by a number of women’s co-operatives. Co-sponsored by the Social Development Agency with the support of the European Union.

the Union des Cooperatives des Femmes de l’Arganeraie is the largest union of argan oil co-operatives in Morocco. It comprises 22 co-operatives that are found in other parts of the region.

Employment in the co-operatives provides women with an income, which many have used to fund education for themselves or their children. It has also provided them with a degree of autonomy in a traditionally male-dominated society and has helped many become more aware of their rights

The success of the argan co-operatives has also encouraged other producers of agricultural products to adopt the co-operative model

The establishment of the co-operatives has been aided by support from within Morocco, notably the Fondation Mohamed VI pour la Recherche et la Sauvegarde de l’Arganier (Mohammed VI Foundation for Research and Protection of the Argan Tree)] and from international.
