Our Ethics

Here at Lost Little One, we refer to our products as being ‘ethically made’.

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. A place that holds true historic value to this colourful and vibrant city. Using ancient methods practised for over 800 years, the leather tanners and local artisans, work together to produce high quality Moroccan products using only natural resources. By sourcing our leather from this tannery, we can ensure that we are minimising our impact on the environment and receiving only the highest calibre, chemical-free, vegetable-dyed leather. We are also proudly playing a small part in sustaining this amazing traditional Moroccan craft. 
It is of the upmost importance, that we are supporting the local trade in Morocco as well as independent small businesses in Melbourne. I choose to work with a small company nestled deep in the Marrakech Medina, by doing so we can be certain that our business is directly benefiting local Moroccan people.
