Morabito is a French luxury brand founded in 1905 in Nice by Jean-Baptiste Morabito, and still operating in Paris today. The workmanship and design were always of the very highest quality and standard, on a par with Hermes, often with unusual clasps and fittings. Marilyn Monroe and Maria Callas were amongst the celebrities for whom these special bags were created. The current shop is in Rue Saint-Honore, Paris.
Condition: Exterior excellent. Lining has a rip at pouch obscuring label, but still readable.
