The turquoise arches on this small box are reminiscent of the iconic gateways in Moroccan architecture. The box is pictured on top of a stack with other chests.

These leather chests are individual expressions of the artists' creative minds. Use of asymmetry, colorful stitched strips, and a wealth of embossing stamps allows freedom to explore and produces one-of-a-kind designs that are satisfying to behold.

A keepsake box protects and organizes your trinkets while displaying its own unique beauty. It was made by old masters of the craft, a few men who are the last remaining members of their cooperative. They welcomed us into their workshop and were happy to show us photos from their past and qualifications obtained in France and Japan.

These handmade leather boxes boast debossed decorations and stitched color strips. Wood paneling is hidden between the leather for structure and provides a satisfying 'clomp' sound when the lid falls shut.

  • This product originates from the Alikhlas leather-working cooperative located in the Artisan Ensemble of Tetouan, Morocco.

    Many cities in Morocco have a government-sponsored ‘Ensemble Artisanal’ established to gather diverse master crafters under one roof and provide them with a direct market, resulting in higher wages and better working conditions.
