By SARAH'S BAG - This stunning hand embroidered clutch is topped with a faceted diamond shaped knob. All over cotton embroidery displays a unique abstract floral pattern. Subtle hues of peach and blue are outlined in black on a textured oatmeal colored canvas base. Both artistic and socially responsible, each piece is created by artisans; women who have been or are unjustly imprisoned or at risk in the Middle East. Each piece is symbolic of empowerment, dedication and skill. Sarah Beydoun, founder and creative director of Sarah's Bag was born and raised in Lebanon. She belongs to a generation of Beirut-based designers who came of age during the country's fifteen year civil war and now contributing to rebuilding the city's cultural life through their work. Sarah's company is partnered with a rehabilitation program, whereby women at risk from economic deprivation or the stigma of having served time in prison would learn valuable skills in return for a reliable income and a stable source of pride, dignity and empowerment. In the process, these women are helping to revamp the centuries old traditions or artisans and textile workers in the Middle East.
