A land of a thousand shades: Purple & Pink - get inspired by the sky of Dam Sidi Chahed




Dam Sidi Chahed under the Stars. How amazing is the view in this photo taken by: Olivier Lamber.

The Sidi Chahed dam reservoir was built in the 1990's, in the El Kalaa Zerhoun region in Northern Morocco. It is situated 30 kms from the cities of Fez and Meknes.

This massive dam can supply over 30 million gallons (170 million m3) of backup tap water to the city of Meknes, and irrigation for about 90 farming communities. Although almost entirely unknown to Moroccans, you can see the importance this has for the surrounding communities. 

Located downstream of the Mikkes and Lmaleh rivers, it can be found on the main road between Fez and Sidi Kacem. It was commissioned in 1997 and has been of a significant importance since its functioning.

Purple is the color most often associated with royalty, magic, mystery and piety. When combined with pink, it is associated with femininity and seduction.

Purple and pink are often present in Moroccan Handicraft. Moroccan Corridor leather bags, leather clutches and blankets use this colors or a successful combination of them in some models.
