Searching the souks of Marrakech, Morocco for treasures is one of my passions, as is finding unique items made by local artisans. Such is the case with these Walakin Carpet Bags. On one of my first trips to Marrakech many years back, which continues to be one of my most favorite places to shop in the world, I met a wonderful designer who crafted the art of fusing traditional Moroccan materials with fresh, modern design. One of the first pieces I ever purchased from her was the Walakin Carpet Bag. Ten years later I am still rocking the bag, but now she has refreshed the style even further, while maintaining the tradition. The result, stylish perfection. Comfortable, practical & alluring the soft, cozy texture of these bags make them ideal for fall and winter although there is no reason why they could not be used year-round. And yes, they hold a lot and pack like a dream.
This is the carpet tote, which features leather handles with a 3.5-inch drop, along with an optional, adjustable, leather shoulder strap. Magnetic closure and interior zip pocket. Brushed satin finish on brass hardware throughout. This bag is available in four color ways:
- Olive & Black
- Red & Ivory
- Sand & Black
- Navy & Sand
Each pouch measures 16" x 10.5" x 5.5"D. The interior zipper has a generous leather pull and a lined interior with the Lalla label inside. Limited stock. Imported.
