Moroccan Ceramic Silver Plate – a bit more information

Safi is also a small town steeped in history and

authenticity whose ceramics have a reputation of their own.

Recognizable by their typical blue color, the amphorae,

flowerpots and everyday objects like cups, bowls and plates

hand crafted by Safi’s potters are just stunning.

Indeed, this little town on the edge of the

Atlantic is one of Morocco’s ceramics capitals.

The city’s rich history and long tradition

of craftsmanship are impressive.

The city’s name as it is locally pronounced is “Asfi”, which

was Latinized as “Safi” and “Safim” under Portuguese rule.

“Asfi” means flood or river estuary in Berber and comes from

the Berber verbal root “ffey/sfi/sfey” which means to floodto spill or to pour.
