A selling exhibition at The Nomads Tent – Edinburgh’s centre for hand-crafts sourced direct from Asia and North Africa – features classic and contemporary Moroccan pottery, noted for its vibrant colours and intricate geometric patterns, inspired by Islamic art, Moorish-Spanish influences and Berber simplicity.

Included in the selection are pared-back, striped designs from the port of Safi, and a contemporary take on classical Fez designs in a monochrome palette, offset by splashes of vibrant colour. Also on display are traditional Moroccan ceramics, hand-made tiles, rugs, hand-dyed leather goods and woven baskets.
