Pottery in Morocco comes mainly from Fez, Rabat, Safi and Wadi Lan.

The blue pottery of Fez is highly popular, and is distinguished by it's vibrant bright blue. The stunning pieces of ceramics from Fez - known as Fassi ceramics - in their traditional blue and white designs are a delight and well-sought after as decorative souvenirs. They can also be used as in the home as bowls and serving dishes.
