Morocco is, among other things, renowned for its leather products. There are shops throughout the medina selling all sorts jackets, ottomans, shoes and every size and shape of bag. I’m in the market for a new weekend bag and a valise, so I’ve been shopping around. This is the one I chose (clicky-clicky for bigger version):
It’s handmade from camel skin. Pretty cool, eh? I talked the guy down a bit (I’m no great bargainer) to just over CAN $100. It smells a bit odd, but I assume that’s just the camel. We’ll find out in a few days, when we go to the desert.
