Potters’ District of Safi

Safi Potters District

Safi potters ply their trade on the lower slopes of the hill as the soil offers excellent clay in this location. In the backstreets of this district, there are big furnaces and craftsmen’s workshops that have established the reputation of Safi pottery. The large shopping gallery will allow you to discover the talent of Safi potters: traditional ceramics are a deep, glimmering blue and the most recent designs play on darker tones with metallic tints.

To know everything there is to know about this art, you can visit the school of the craftsmen’s cooperative of Safi. There you will discover the different phases of ceramic production: turning, decoration and firing.
