Every Day, Every OccasionOur Merkato Signature Tote is a must-have for virtually any woman on-the-go. Supremely versatile, built to last forever, and made with the finest full-grain leather, this tote will quickly become the only one you wear. With soft curved straps an interior zipper pocket, and key ring, it's not your average tote.
Premium, Full Grain LeatherWe use only premium, full grain leather from Ethiopia, hand selected to ensure quality, beauty, and durability. But what's "full grain", you ask? Full grain leather is the way leather should be; it's the highest quality available and represents the natural and unaltered hide. It's not sanded or weakened, and is as tough as nature intended it to be. Our leather is built not just to last, but to get better with every passing year.
Your Choices MatterProducts from Parker Clay are life-changing – for their lifelong owners, yes, but also for the women who create them. Many women in Ethiopia have little or no opportunity for professional skill development or long-term careers, and many turn to coercive, dangerous work to provide for their families. Approximately 1 of 4 women in Addis Ababa (the capital of Ethiopia) are unemployed, and over 150,000 are in prostitution.
