Artisan handmade Leather Backpack by Meron

Meron Leather Backpack minimal in design. Made from high-quality Ethiopian leather. Doubles as a chic work bag, perfect for carrying a laptop!


Ethiopian Designer Meron Said's namesake brand is the perfect intersection of function and modern minimalism.  Her background in architecture and her passion for the process has driven her to transform her own home in Addis Ababa into a full-time workshop where she currently employees 25 artisans.  Team and community building are integral parts of Meron's model.  They offer workforce training, medical insurance, paid leave, above federal min wage and annual bonuses to her primarily female artisans. Sustainability, is a priority in their production processes. They reuse scrap leather to create new products and the core leathers are by-product, chrome free.
