About this project

 

 

 

Each Meqnes weekend bag is expertly designed by Moroccan artisans and handcrafted with high quality European leather, to ensure that we combine the unique Moroccan look together with luxury-grade materials meant for durability. Made of vegetable-tanned calfskin, the unique hyde is high quality, durable and designed to turn heads.

Other weekend bags become worn out and lose their shape. Meqnes can withstand all of your travels, wherever you may go.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For months, we searched high and low for the highest quality leather we could find. We needed something that would keep its shape and was beautiful enough to turn heads. Finally, we identified and chose an exquisite calfskin leather supplier in Poland. On par with our high standards, this full-grain calfskin is vegetable-tanned for a unique look and color.

 

 

Most weekend bags, whether made of genuine leather or canvas, are destined to become floppy, unusable bags after time and years of use. We know we are not the first to design a beautiful leather bag, but we are confident in the fact we are the only one you will need for your weekend getaways.

The high-quality leather we chose and the way each stitch is woven is designed to keep the shape of the bag through years of use. 

 

 

 

 

Meqnes comes in two colors, Sahara and Bullet to start, with more coming down the road as stretch goals!

Every single one of our Meqnes bags is designed by extremely talented Moroccan artisans who understand the quality, aesthetic and promises we hold. These skilled artisans have been working for years in the traditional markets and understand the look and feel we are striving for. 

 

Every stitch, buckle, color, zipper and handle has gone through a thorough check to ensure the traditions of Morocco are visible, in these bags which have been hand made with European leather. A simple look at the details of the Meqnes bag proves this to be true.

 

We use a three-step model to when it comes to creating and delivering our beautiful bags. First, our team hand-selects the materials for each weekender. Once the materials are selected, they are given to the skilled artisans we hire and they begin their magic. Once the bags are finished being hand-crafted, they are sent directly to you to enjoy. 

Just take a look below at everything we are cutting out compared to current luxury brands on the market.

Risks and challenges

Our products are handmade and we want to make sure each bag is of the highest quality. For this reason, depending on quantity of orders, it is always possible that there are some delays in delivering your new weekender. To avoid this we have very clearly communicated to our partners (the guys who provide the world-class, full-grain vegetable tanned leather, etc.) about our timeline and are confident we can keep to schedule.
