Seven Summits (satchel)

This satchel holds seven stones gathered from the apex of the seven tallest mountains in Morocco’s Western High Atlas range.

Collaborating with Hafid Lamrani, a traditional Moroccan bag maker based in the souks of Marrakech’s medina, the seven custom-made satchels were designed to each carry a single large stone. The stones were extracted from the individual summits with geological tools in October 2011. When these stones were returned to their exact origins in June 2012, the satchels were filled with seven smaller, loose stones from each individual peak. These smaller stones were divided between the satchels so that each would contain a piece of the 
seven mountains.
