This year's buying trip included a visit to Khalil's thuya wood shop in the beautiful coastal town of Essaouira, Morocco. The aromatic cedar-like scent of Moroccan thuya wood fills the town's streets and shops, adding to the already-exotic experience of shopping in Morocco. We spent an afternoon browsing Khalil's lovely handcrafted boxes and accessories, re-ordering customer favorites, and choosing new treasures for our site. Our favorite new thuya wood item: this intricately-inlaid handcrafted Thuya Wood Serving Tray. Check our Thuya Wood page for more new products.
