More presents from around the world
Although Algeria’s star product is its carpets, there are other greatly appreciated souvenirs you can take home with you. For example, tourists often buy culinary souvenirs such as the delicious dates, which you can find almost everywhere and which are easy to carry. There are other, very characteristic, artisanal products made in the area, such as the famous desert roses or leather clothes. And if you are looking for a more luxurious present, the jewellery from Beni Yenni and its red coral will make a really original souvenir, a definite success. Finally, don’t miss the opportunity to peruse items of the Tuareg culture and other Berber peoples from prior to the arrival of the Europeans, such as utensils for the home or musical instruments which are very popular. And, at some stalls they will even accept exchanges for products which are hard to find locally such as jeans or trainers. Interesting, isn’t it?
