About Sarah: Dynamic, passionate and determined, with an epicurean’s delight in beauty and art, founder and creative director Sarah Beydoun designs handbags and accessories that are known for their intricate craftsmanship, attention to detail and vibrant, high-spirited appeal.
Born and raised in Beirut, Sarah’s unconventional journey in fashion began during her final year of a graduate degree in sociology, when she was conducting research at Dar Al Amal, an NGO that rehabilitates women at risk and female ex-prisoners.
Soon after, she decided to set up a business that would train and employ the women she’d met during her fieldwork. She launched Sarah's Bag in Beirut in May of 2000, bringing together her love of fashion and design with the mission to empower underprivileged women. Sarah’s exuberant persona shines through each of her designs and the finished results are hip, luxurious, hand crafted statement pieces that are always fun and playful.
In 2014, with the push to expand the label’s international reach, Sarah’s sister Malak, an advertising and fashion publishing professional, joined the company as a partner, bringing with her valuable industry experience to the brand.
"Sarah’s Bag is a Lebanese fashion house that creates one-of-a-kind luxury handcrafted handbags and accessories, and a social enterprise that empowers underprivileged women in Lebanon. The signature handwork on our bags and accessories is meticulously crafted by a team of over 200 women, among whom are female prisoners, ex-prisoners and economically disadvantaged women. For the past 16 years, Sarah’s Bag has proven that fashion and a worthy cause go together beautifully, and we are proud to be worn by women of style and substance around the world." - Not Just A Label
