Lost Little One is powered and inspired by human connection. There’s a close-knit but globally-spread community involved in its inception, its refinement and its evolution. It’s about time we introduce ourselves
Here at Lost Little One, we refer to our products as being ‘ethically handmade’. But what does ethically made mean to us? We believe in a path less travelled and pride ourselves on being the perfect fusion of Melbourne style and Moroccan culture. Our leather is ethically sourced from the local tannery in Marrakech
It is of the upmost importance, that we are supporting the local trade in Morocco. You may have heard the name Abdussamed mentioned from time to time. This is our very first artisan and the man who helped to bring Lost Little One to life. A father of four and a leather worker for more than 20 years. I chose to work one on one with Abdu in Morocco after meeting him on my second trip to Marrakech.Continue reading
Combining my love for travel and my creative side just made sense.
Having the opportunity to live and work in Morocco has been a great adventure so far. Lost Little One is naturally evolving and slow fashion in motion: we know exactly where, how and by whom each bag was crafted. Supporting local artisans and the ancient technique of vegetable tanning leather.
“We made it to the nothingness and realised it was everything”
Seven friends flying in from five different countries, the meeting spot a bus stop in the middle of nowhere. This was our introduction to the Moroccan Western Sahara. A barren land with sand as far as the eye can see. After a treacherous bus ride from all directions we arrived at our final destination, Merzouga. Situated on the edge of the dunes this sleepy city offers a place to rest before spending our long awaited night under the stars.
