About marabarabags

Sales 1,183
On Etsy since 2011

Marabara is a personal project, one woman's dream, my dream...

I strongly believe that a different way of doing things is possible. Moving away from the fast, cheap and mass production processes, Marabara strives for a SLOW making process, handcrafting bags one at a time, at a slow pace, with care and great attention to detail.

Marabara is a SMALL business, and so it will remain. One woman’s dream, taking care of and savouring the whole process, from the design of the bags to the finished product and packaging.

My aim is to handcraft light and functional bags for everyday use. SIMPLE designs, versatile and durable, to accompany you for a long time. Back to basics, sourcing quality materials plus an outstanding craftsmanship.

I love what I do and hope that Marabara's products will bring that spirit to you and you will enjoy them as much as I do creating them!

PS, if you wonder why my logo is a little cute ghost here's the reason. We are the Geist family, half German - half Spanish, living in the countryside in Madrid, with our two kids and a Labrador dog. Geist is a german surname which means "ghost". That's why! :)

About the materials I use:

I am constantly searching for the best quality materials.
I use 100% cotton canvas in all our bags.
The waxed cotton canvas is produced by one of the most experienced manufactures in Scotland, working with this material since 1864.
I source the genuine leather from local manufactures.

PRODUCT CARE - waxed cotton canvas
1.- Lightly brush off dried mud and dirt
2.- Sponge wipe with cold water
3.- Let your bag dry naturally
4.- To get an uniform finish, blow evenly with a hairdryer and let it cool.

Do not use soap or detergent. Do not machine wash. Do not dry clean. Do not tumble dry. Do not iron.
