Carpet seller in Marrakech

The countries of North Africa and the Near East are renowned for their carpet weaving and hand-knotted carpets, including Morocco. Lots of shops and sellers offer their merchandise. Those who have some knowledge in this matter can purchase a beautiful and high-quality carpet, albeit after hard negotiations, very cheaply. There are also rogue carpet vendors who target unsuspecting tourists, these guys are shark vendors who quickly get to know who they are dealing with and it won't be the first traveler to realize when coming home the traditional carpet he bought so cheaply in is in fact, an inferior mass product, originating from a third world country, he paid an outrageous amount.
