Morocco is the gem of the North Africa having coastlines on both the North Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Morocco has tremendous culture due to the inhabitation of the multi-ethnic population. While traveling to Morocco, the colors of indigenous Berber community and Jewish and Muslim populace can easily be observed. The country is a reasonably huge country and its every part has its own cultural recognition.

The Moroccan society is not conservative because Morocco is a peaceful and tourist friendly country. Morocco has no particular rules and regulation about the clothing but the Moroccans have kept alive the custom to wear the traditional dress of Morocco.

Moroccans are overall a stylish and smart nation and they prefer to dress up with fashionable and impressive clothing. Both men and women wear a same traditional attire which is called djellaba; a long, loose, hooded garment with full sleeves.

The women of Morocco also wear Caftan or Kaftan which is without a hood unlike the djellaba. This dress is particularly decorated with the typical woman embroidery upon the dress openings and arms. Kaftan is usually worn on the festive occasions and wedding ceremonies by the Moroccan women.

For all of the Moroccan women the bright colored silks and other dainty fabrics are favorites. The craftsmen and tailors apply their special skills to make the women dresses attractive and graceful. The women of high class also use a traditional belt which has golden embroidery and exquisite decorations along the edges.

      My dear. We have particularly mentioned the names of the owners of the photographs along with the photos. However if you still dislike it we’ll remove the photograph. Is there any mistake in the facts ?

    I do not personally have any problems with you using my picture on your site, although I would have liked to have been asked for permission first. You may, however, wish to look into “copyrights” before using other people’s photos, as ‘Copyrights give the owner the exclusive right to display the copyrighted work publicly’ amongst other things. Notice the word EXCLUSIVE…..

    As for the facts, the man in the picture is not Moroccan, he is a tourist in a local dress.
