  • Our hand crafted backpacks combine the mastery of both leather and textile Berber artisans to create the kind of everyday, or not-so-everyday, travel essentials your inner nomad most likely fantasizes about 
  • Leather is soft and handmade in world renowned 1000 year-old Fez el Bali tanneries by craftsmen using techniques that have been honed since medieval times
  • Textile is hand knotted kilim wool rug in a classic white with black color palette characteristic of the Zemmour tribe in the Middle Atlas region, one of the oldest, most respected and recognizable weaving traditions in Morocco
  • Geometric diamond motifs and tattoo symbols are accented by multiple colors including yellow, blue, green, purple, red, etc., that combine to tell tribe stories related to the natural cycle of life with no two patterns alike
  • Sequins (mouzoun in arabic) incorporated into the kilim design add an element of boho glamour and were traditionally used in textile designs as a way to protect against the evil eye
  • Design includes kilim front and leather bottom and back main storage space with drawstring and top flap buckle to prevent your belongings from tumbling out
