Lovely. Leather is not *quite* as high quality as I envisioned-- if they'd made a bag in the nappa leather in this color I would have bought it-- but it's still very nice. Perfect for my laptop.

About

Morelle: Twin sisters dream

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

Katie is a self-taught designer with nothing but pure creative power and resolve. She started morelle completely as a hobby on the side of her full time job, learning as she went along. In less than a year after she started, she had quit her full time job and Etsy even invited her to be a featured seller.

After a couple of years of success and a break due to personal circumstances Katie was back to the sewing table and this time her sister Jenny followed.

While Katie is the creative one, Jenny is the analytical genius. They both knew that to run a label you need both creativity and to be business savvy and that together they would have the perfect match.

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.
