Quote Cirecle 2


My childhood hero was Indiana Jones. I wanted to traverse culture and place like him, always on the go and always ready to go, my bag of tricks conveniently strapped to my side.

That first daring escape in ’Raiders of the Lost Ark’, not only inspired my lifelong wanderlust, it inadvertently set me on an endless quest for the perfect everyday bag. I searched for something sleek, simple, comfortable, and functional, marrying practicality with style. Hands free transit with easy access to the essentials became the highest value.

Ten years ago, I found an 'almost' perfect leather bag in Chefchaouen, suitable for all occasions, and I have used it every day of my adventures since, near and far from home.

Life eventually led me back to Morocco, where I sought out the original leather craftsman to recreate the bag. We worked together to fine tune the design features and fit, elevating the quality, versatility, and craftsmanship. And thus, this Modern Nomad travel bags was born. I now partner with local artisans in Chefchaouen and Tinghir to offer you the sophisticated utility of our everyday bag.

Your endless quest is finally over.
