BIOGRAPHY

Sarah’s Bag is a Beirut-based handbag and accessories brand and one of the Middle East’s leading social enterprises. It had unorthodox beginnings as a rehabilitation project set up in 2000 by sociology graduate student Sarah Beydoun (now Creative Director) to train and employ female prisoners in Lebanon. Sarah’s Bag handbags and accessories are designed around the skills of 200 prisoners and ex- prisoners in Lebanon, artisans in their own right, whose intricate, meticulous handwork is the label’s signature. Over the years, the best of these artisans went on to train other women once they completed their sentences, some establishing their own ateliers, and thus completing a virtuous circle where fashion and the cause are seamlessly intertwined.
