Up the winding staircase of an Art Deco apartment building in the Tabaris neighborhood of Beirut is the fantastic Sarah’s Bag. The chic handbag line employs at-risk local women to hand-craft the exquisite purses, totes, and clutches. There are pieces designed with everything from beaded Arabic calligraphy proclaiming “passion” and “my heart,” to hand-painted psychedelic prints and lucite clutches in the shape of Backgammon sets.
