What to wear when going to the mosque?
“Moroccan slippers. Given to me December 20th 1975 by Erik Grønborg Mortensen, who got them from his uncle Børge Lundberg, circa 1954, who had bought them in Morocco (Casablanca). Everyone – rich and poor, flop about in these slippers, which are easy to get out of at the entrance to the mosque. The slippers are made of yellow tanned leather, very fine (maybe ox). They have a back patch stitched to the front, but the patch is constantly pressed down. These slippers are called Moroccan Barbouches.” – Søren L. Tuxen
