A souvenir carpet
You won't find a more original present from your visit to Oran.
As you will realize, when you see all the different stalls and markets in Oran, artisanal crafts are the pièce de résistance in the shops, and this is where carpets have a significant commercial role to play. And it is through the carpets that we can learn a little more about the country’s history, as each region of Algeria made their carpets with their own individual characteristics; even so, they are all made from sheep and goat wool, and they are all of the highest quality. If you are interested in this type of craft, you need to know that there is a carpet fair in the city of Ghardaia every March: this city is about 500 kilometres from Oran and equidistant from the capital. Here you will have the chance to peruse and understand the deep significance of popular artisanal products for Algerian culture. It will be a unique opportunity.
