Our Moroccan handbags are très gorgeous, and so perfect for any girl-on-the-go!
WHERE THEY’RE FROM
These bags (as well as our fold-over clutches!) were designed and produced by Studio Rachid. Rachid, who began practicing the trade at just 16 years old, apprenticed under three different master leather workers before opening his own workshop five years later. Now, he runs two small workshops and a retail space on the outskirts of the Marrakech Medina in Morocco, employing over 12 leather artisans, including pattern makers, tailors, and leather dyers. He has an eye for combining Western design with Moroccan craftsmanship and reads Elle and Marie Claire to come up with new designs.
WHO THEY’RE FOR
First of all, the ‘Oh Sooo Studly’ and ‘Slouchy Shopper’ bags are LARGE! The bowlers are 9″ x 15.5″ x 10″ are feature inside compartments. The black tote is 6.5″ x 15″ x 12″ with zipper compartments on the inside. What’s so good about bags that have so much space? Umm, everything!
Here are just a few examples of girls-on-the-go that could greatly benefit from such large, yet so chic, bags!
- The Yogi: There’s something so boring about typical gym bags, so spice it up a bit and bring the ‘Slouchy Shopper’ with you! It’s large enough to fit a small towel, your water bottle, a snack, your iPod, your yoga mat, and anything else you might need on your way, during, and from your trip to the studio!
- The Business Woman: Our Bowlers & Black Tote are the perfect size for the woman traveling in and out of the city for work! Fit your personal items in the ‘Oh Sooo Studly’ bag, along with your iPad Mini! Then, replace your old canvas tote or dull briefcase with the ‘Slouchy Shopper’! It’s great for folders of paperwork and a small laptop.
- The Mom: Let’s face it, moms need big bags! You need a bag for snacks, diapers, crayons, activity books, band-aids, and everything else! Our ‘Slouchy Tote’ is the answer for your endless list of on-the-go necessities. (Don’t forget the sunscreen!)
- The Student: There is nothing I hated more in school than a book bag. Totes and over-sized purses were always the answer! Load up your Bowler on days with a light class load, and include your small notebooks, journals, calculator, and novels. On your heavy class load days, use your Tote! Your notebooks, light textbooks, MacBook Air, and nalgene water bottle will thank you!
