Know before you go
- About Damascene and embroidery of Meknes:
- Damascene is the typical speciality of Meknes found only there. It is made of iron decorated with silver wire; it is a sort of filigree brought in the 15th century by artisans from Toledo, Spain, during the Christian inquisition exactly in 1492. In Toledo, the artisans still use gold wire for decoration, whereas in Meknes, artisans use silver wire.
- The second speciality of Meknes is the embroidery of the Franciscan nuns. It is composed of napkins and tablecloths that are reversible double-face. The Franciscan nuns were teaching Moroccan orphan girls how to make this technique of counted stitch embroidery so that the orphan girls would have an income. So, it is a social and economic purpose in order to help the girls. This handicraft has preserved the same techniques and is now one of the main specialities of Meknes.
