“Empowered women mean empowered societies,” this is  the motto of inspiring accessory brand, Sarah’s Bag. This Beirut, Lebanon-based business paves the way for sound supply chain practices, proving that fair labor does not compromise gorgeous and innovative design. Sarah’s Bag employs women at risk as their artisans, who hand make absolutely original clutches and handbags with lavish embellishments including embroidery, cross stitching, intricate beading, crochet and so much more.

Founded in 2000, Sarah’s Bag has grown to employ more than 150 women across Lebanon who have taken solace and found empowerment in the opportunity presented by Sarah to take control of their lives; finding work that helps them contribute to their communities and support their families in a world that otherwise casted them aside. These women congregate together to hand stitch designs that showcase their skills, giving them a space to connect with each other while producing magnificent works of art for the world to enjoy.

Sarah’s Bag is an inspiration – really shedding light on the fashion industry and the vast opportunities it has to support and help communities in need. Rather than sourcing cheap and unfair labor in mega-factories, why not source individuals like these Lebanon women who, with just a bit of instruction, can produce not only gorgeous designs, but high quality pieces that will last lifetime, while at the same time improves the lives of others.

A truly magnificent display, this brand should be commended for their tremendous effort and success in combining fashion, business, and humanitarianism.
