Katie Grigoratou's Profile

About

Morelle is owned by twin sisters Jenny and Katie Grigoratou. It was founded in 2007 by Katie in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Morelle-designs combine feminine style with practicality. The basic style of the bags is chic, stylish and a little bit playful. At the same time they are all functional and built to resist the everyday wear and tear. Katie's unconventional introduction to design has resulted in unusual and maybe a little bit quirky design style.

Morelle bags are made with genuine Italian cowhide leather. We try to use the best materials available so our bags will be sturdy and last forever.
