Sarah & Malak Beydoun
Sisters Sarah and Malak Beydoun were born and raised in Beirut. After mastering in Sociology in USJ, Sarah launched her brand Sarah’s Bag in 2000, bringing together her love of design and fashion with her desire to empower and work with underprivileged women. Her line of handcrafted handbags and accessories are designed around the skills of the 200 female prisoners and ex-prisoners she has personally trained and worked with over the past 14 years. In 2014, Sarah joined forces with her sister Malak, who, after 16 years of experience with the region’s most prominent names in the advertising and fashion industry (Leo Burnett, Aishti, L’Officiel), took over the role of development manager and designer at Sarah’s Bag. Today, the brand is carried by global online retailers and concept stores like Net-a-Porter, Colette and Matches London and has over 50 points of sale in 22 countries.
