Story Behind the Art:
Two brothers and a cousin, Youssef, Abdo, and Khalid, create these briefcases, handbags and other goods using traditional leather craft skills passed down from their parents. Their small work shop in the medina (old town) of Marrakech supports their families and also provides a livelihood for some of their neighbors.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

Questions & Answers
Hello rachelconnecticut, Yes this will smell like leather. This is crafted of rich alder brown cowhide. Have a great day!
Is the bag treated for water-proofing in any way? If not, can you recommend a product category (grease, spray, etc) that is most suitable for this particular bag? I have to specify that I'd like to keep the original color of the bag even after such treatment. In my country we have a decent amount of rainfall and sometimes during the winter, heavy snowing. It would be a shame to ruin such a beautiful bag. Thanks!
Hi drojdier, thank you for your inquiry. The brief case is natural leather and is not treated in any way. We recommend a standard protective spray-applied petroleum-based chemical that is suitable for use on leather, suede, fabric & canvas [do not use a product that requires the leather to be oiled].
Is the interior of this bag divided into halves, and, if so, how deep is each half? What I want to know is if I can fit a water bottle inside.
Thank you for your interest in the Handmade Leather Briefcase (Morocco). The interior of the Handmade Leather Briefcase (made in Morocco) is divided into two halves. For the larger size, 16 x 12 x 5 inches, the interior compartments are approximately 15.5 inches long x 10.5 inches high x 2.5 inches deep each, fully expanded. The bag would accommodate contents slightly larger than 10.5 inches high because of its adjustable buckles. For the smaller size, 14.5 x 11 x 4 inches, the interior compartments are approximately 13.5 inches long x 9.25 inches high x 2 inches deep each, fully expanded. The bag would accommodate contents slightly larger than 9.25 inches high because of its adjustable buckles. A 13" Macbook fits nicely. The under-flap pocket is approximately 10.75 inches long x 6.75 inches high (larger size) and 6.25 inches high (smaller size). The under-flap pocket is open at the top, and has a zipper pocket on its front.
Medium size says that it fits most 13 inch laptops. how is the 13 inches being measured? my laptop is 13.5 inches across. The screen is 14 inches diagonally and 12.5 inches across.
The measurement are done with 14 inches long and 11 wide. We hope this helped.
do you have this briefcase in a large?
Currently, the only size we have in stock is 14.5 inches by 11 inches by 4 inches.
