Story Behind the Art

Souraka Diakite has been working independently as a master leather craftsman, maroquiner in French, since 1984. Throughout his childhood and adolescence he carefully learned and perfected the skills of cutting, shaping, smoothing, and delicately piecing together leather to form beautiful bags, briefcases, shoes, and other artistic creations. Souraka.s leather pieces are heavily influenced by the culture he grew up in, which was a little bit all over Mali which is reflected in his bags, ranging from classic all-leather simple designs, to modern city-chic designs perfect for Malian professionals in downtown Bamako. Many of his pieces feature bold symbols from the N.Ko alphabet, for the Bambana language/

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.

  • leather chiwara bag

    It is beautiful but it arrived with the seam on the side already pulling apart. I can not put anything into it without it pulling further apart. May be it is just this one. it is gorgeous.

    This bag was a great value and looks fantastic in person, I've already gotten quite a few compliments. However, it slides off my shoulders very easily. From other reviews, it sounds like it stays put well, but my experience thus far, has not been that way. I'm hoping to break it in and mold it to my shoulders, but if you are petite, the bag may not stay on as well - I still have hope though.

  • Nice tote!
    Verified Purchase

    Looks good, comfortable to carry........the opening needs to be a little wider for easier access. Would be nice to have an inside zippered pocket and/or one on the outside.

  • Nice Bag
    Verified Purchase

    The only thing is that it really isnt user friendly, the space itnt large tho its a large bag...its shapped a little odd around the zipper area but it is cute.

    Simply put I love the bags. (I ordered 3 ) am more than satisfied just the right size ,rich color , wide strap, my daughter who lives in another city came by saw the bag and just had to have one in plum ,she actually wanted to take mine .( she was going on vacation the next day.). of course I said no way , for the first time I couldn't give in. I ordered one for her and it is waiting for her when she arrives home. I spoke with her while she was away and she has requested one as a gift for another friend. So I will be ordering another one in a few days.. In a nutshell I could not be more satisfied with my purchases.
