Morocco is a style of leather book binding that is usually made with goatskin, as it is durable and easy to dye.

(see also Goatskin) 

There are several types of bindings for Morocco goatskin:  

Crushed Morocco: No noticeable grain, as it has been flattened by pressing, ironing, or rolling the goatskin.

Levant Morocco: Exquisite elegant style of Morocco where the large grain is left and the goatskin is highly polished.

Niger Morocco: A rustic look created by rubbing the goatskin, making a subtle grain and flexible leather.  The name derived from it's the point of origin in West Africa.

Straight-Grain Morocco: A style created by moistening the skin and creating a artificial parallel grain.
