This past weekend I traveled to Beirut and made a stop at one of my favorite boutiques Sarah's Bag. I love everything about the store and the brand. Check out their vibrant and super cool summer collection. You can also find Sarah's Bag on the very cool Dia online boutique.
Sarah Beydoun established Sarah's Bag as a way to celebrate Middle Eastern culture and empower marginalized women through fashion. Her team of craftswomen acquire skills and self-sufficiency while energizing centuries-old textile-based traditions, making these bags not merely cove table, but also ethically sound. Sequin by tiny sequin, stitch by intricate stitch, a handbag canvas comes to life. Under the patient, skillful hand of the artisan, it will be ten maybe twenty hours before the story unfolds: it could be the fearless palette of a wildly beaded Afghan Bag, the timeless beauty of Arabic calligraphy on an elegant evening clutch, or the bold silver hardware of a punk-rock princess shoulder bag.
