Storyline:

A woman’s smart handbag designed by a talented Tunisian young man reminds women of forgotten items at the bottom of the bag.

Mahdi Soussi, a student at a sectoral training center in the leather and footwear sector, ranked second in the Euro-Mediterranean competition for his innovation that combined ancient leather craft and modern technology.

The new wallet includes a small screen that displays the name of the missing items and indicates when all items have been completed.

Mahdi told A24 News Agency’s reporter that he quit his job as a company manager and joined vocational training to become a designer.

Director of the Training Center in the Leather and Footwear Sector Fathi Al-Boghanmi said the leather sector should keep pace with development and the market.
