At Marakesh Leather we specialize in handmade leather belts and unique accessories for style and quality conscious men and women. Originating in Seattle’s Pike Place Market in 1971 as an offshoot of California’s infamous Yoga Society, we became part of a group of artists dedicated to recognizing and saving the Market’s charms for future generations. To this day local artists preserve the “Meet the Producer” ethic that has guided our business in Pike Place Market for over 100 years. Marakesh Leather has flourished in this tradition.
Our name is borrowed respectfully from the Crosby Stills & Nash song “Marrakesh Express”. Marrakesh, Morocco, with its lively market places and tradition in leather-work has long been a colorful crossroads of commerce and ideas. The Pike Place Market as such is Seattle’s vibrant crossroad. As they say, "all roads lead to 1st and Pike!"
Our business is built upon our love for creativity and the energized atmosphere of Pike Place Market. We proudly endorse more cowbell in all areas of life!
