In 2017, we launched our Weekender, a uniquely-designed Moroccan inspired bag designed to last a lifetime. With the help and support of our amazing first supporters, we were able to turn our dream into a reality.
We were blown away by all the encouragement, support and positive feedback we received and we knew that we had more work to do to improve the Weekender to bring it closer to the dream we had as well as offer a wider range of products with different price points and use cases.
Fortunately, that time is here 🙂
I’d like to share with you the Meqnes Origins 2.0 New Collection :
