In desperate need of some advice for product supplier HELP :D

Hi there,

I was hoping someone could give me some advice. I am starting my own business in carved leather handbags. I have vintage ones that I have sourced and also learnt to carve myself. My next step is having my new designs made. I would ideally like to get them handmade and dyed in Morocco or India where it is a common practice for the people to make such items. Morocco seems to be the original carved leather bag makers. Please does anyone have any information and areas, suppliers etc where I could visit and take a design to be made?

This is a small business venture where each one would be carefully and slowly handmade. I am not looking for mass production but handmade and beautiful quality :smile:

Thank you for any help you may be able to give :smile:

    Good luck with your venture @Brybry. Are you asking for places in India or Morocco exclusively?

    Thank you @"Ryan O'Bleness" For either to be honest. Wherever anyone may know of that would be a good place to visit to get the carved leather bags made :smile: I don't have a clue where to go for something like this and have tried researching on the net with no luck! :smile: any advice or help would be amazing! xx

    OK, I don't have any experience with that myself, but hopefully one of our many community members will be able to help you out! 

    One suggestion I have is to check Etsy, and see if there is anybody there that can either make the products you desire or point you toward somebody who can. 

    Best of luck!
