THE STORY OF MOROCCO BOUND

WHAT'S IN THE NAME?

Firstly, the name reflects the shop's location: Morocco Street. The area used to be famous for both its tanneries and its printing industry. Moroccan leather was some of the finest quality out there, so it was used for binding books back in the day.

It is also a pun which comes from the film - The Road To Morocco - in which Bing Crosby and Bob Hope travelling on a camel, Morocco bound!

Morocco Bound has existed since September 2019, but under various guises.

The space was first used as an office by Jonathan's architectural firm. It was after going on a literary tour of Zimbabwe that he was inspired to open his own bookshop.
