PRISON CHIC Sarah’S Bag

Sarah’s Bag on CNN

Sarah Beydoun’s hand-embroidered purses gained worldwide fashion fame when Queen Rania and Catherine Deneuve were spotted carrying them.

The story began a few years ago when Sarah was a student in Beirut writing a thesis on vulnerable women  including prisoners. Through a women’s social centre, Sarah spent some time with former prisoners seeking a new life after release from jail.When she completed her thesis, she thought of a way to help them.She began by employing five inmates in Baabda Female Prison to make bracelets.

‘Sarah’s Bag” is meticulously handmade by Lebanese women prisoners or former inmates as a source of income and a way to reintegrate into society.
