I cannot even remember the last time I have posted anything on “In The Souk”. I really missed it!

Moroccan leather top handle bag

This leather handmade top handle bag, with colorful stripes is this week’s In The Souk item.

Moroccan Embroidered Envelope clutch

Initially a man’s cross body bag (weird, right?), this Moroccan bag, that I personally use as an envelope clutch is this week’s find from the souk. Made of pure leather, this traditional bag is embellished with hand made Moroccan embroidery. And its removable strap has tassels at the end of each side.

This very traditional silver brooch is a Moroccan accessory staple. Generally used to embellish a simple kaftan belt, I find it to be an original add on to a blazer, or any other clothing item (you can get creative with it).

Casual kaftan

A very popular piece of clothing in Moroccan markets, the gandoura is known for it simplicity with a hint of sophistication added by the intricate traditional embroideries. Perfect for a warm weather, this light”dress” can be worn both indoors … Continue Reading

I finally decided on two vintage tribal pieces. Even though they are not a set, both of them are made … Continue Reading
