Marrakesh, which is the fourth largest city in the Kingdom of Morocco and was founded in 1602, is also known as the “Red City”, or “Ochre City”, for its peculiar buildings constructed in red sandstone during 1122-1123 by Ali ibn Yusuf, who also built the red walls of the city.
In the 12th century, the Andalusian style influenced the construction of many madrasas and mosques, built by the Almoravids.

As Marrakesh kept rapidly growing, it established itself as a religious, cultural, and trending center for the Maghreb and sub-Saharan Africa.

Present day’s Moroccan handicrafts had been widely impacted by Marrakesh’s arts and crafts, which can be seen in the popular use of Riad décor in carpets and textiles, ceramics, and both in metalwork and woodwork.
