Akbar Delights

Rue Fehl Chidmi, Marrakesh, Morocco

212 (0) 6-671-66-13-07

Tucked just around the corner from the Place Jemaa El Fna, Akbar Delights sells some of the most stylish kaftans and Moroccan-influenced fashion in Marrakech. When Yann Dory and Isabelle Duchet-Annez, a worldly brother and sister team who settled in Marrkach, opened Akbar in 2004, it was the first boutique in the souk owned by expats. And while most of the products are made in India, they capture the Morocco vibe in a refined way. Akbar is known for colorful thin cotton cover-ups, which are often embellished with embroidery or sequins. You will also find attractive evening bags, pillows and objects. The brand has been such a hit that Akbar items can be found at Akbar in Paris as well as stylish hotels throughout Morocco like Amanjena and Ksar Char Bagh. In recent years, the proprietor has expanded her buying to include unusual housewares as well, such as bronzed antlers, West African sculptures and wooden cartouches, which were once used as contracts.
