It's no lie that 2020 sucked for most of us. Without any other option I embraced the break and time to reset in Melbourne, buy I desperately missed Morocco, my friends & Moroccan life. I've missed jumping on a plane, escaping the hustle and bustle of the city and spending my days basking in that hot African sun. But most of all I've missed being able to design, create and craft with my artisans in Marrakech.
It comes with great pleasure to finally be able to share some amazing news with our loyal Lost Little One customers.
After a long year off, ancient leather tanneries in Morocco are back in action and our beautiful leather artisans in Marrakech are ready and able to get back in the workshop and resume doing what they love!
Over the years we've formed a close relationship with our Moroccan comrades and in the last 12 months we've been in constant contact. Always checking in, getting and giving updates on how this weird situation is affecting our two different worlds. Much like everyone else my artisans and I have adjusted and adapted. Now we tackle the next part of this journey together, as we work as a team with 10853 miles between us.
We're extremely excited that we've joined forces with our Moroccan friends yet again and within the next few weeks we will begin creating our beautiful handmade Moroccan leather bags and accessories; designed in Melbourne and crafted in the backstreets of that amazing Marrakech Medina.
With this news we are extremely happy to announce that slowly but surely we will be restocking the Lost Little One online store and throwing some epic slow sales along the way.
