Moroccan Tannery

Ever wonder where your leather goods come from? I got a first hand view of the tannery in Marrakech, where the skins are de-furred, neutralized, dried, and dyed. I'm not saying it was the most pleasant place, and it smells so foul that they give you a sprig of mint to hold under your nose while on the premises. Nonetheless, it was interesting to see since I use leather in my handbag designs.

Don't worry- this cute donkey will not become leather!
