In Search of the Elusive Babouche

Issue 24 · Channeling Marrakech · June 14, 2012

Guests in Moroccan homes are accustomed to leaving their shoes at the door and slipping on a pair of babouches, the traditional Moroccan leather slippers. We're fans of babouches—we just wish they were easier to come by. If you know of a source, let us know in the comments section, please!

Here's a roundup of some our finds:

Babouches

Above: Babouches from Brooklyn's Sweet Bella; contact directly for pricing.

Above: Michi is a store in Marrakech run by a Japanese-Moroccan couple with a keen eye and the best curated selection of babouches we've seen to date. The slippers are available online (with the caveat that the site is in Japanese, as is the pricing). To order, visit Michi.

Babouche homme FASSI
