Barbouche is the name given to colourful, hand-crafted slipper like footwear made either from genuine leather or imitation leather sold in the Medina.  They come in a variety of colours and styles.  They are not particularly hard wearing, in that they only appear to last for a season but they are affordable and fun accoutrements for dressing up.  Upon wearing these slippers, one feels like a fictitious character out of 1001 Arabian Nights.
