Product Description

These beautiful little hemispherical shaped bags from Sinai, Egypt will tempt you to find a multitude of uses for them, so that you’ll always have one nearby. They come in a variety of colors and patterns executed in fine thread and bead embroidery. We offer 6 different color and pattern combinations.

Each lined bag has a zippered closure and it is embellished with embroidered, beaded motifs and a fine beaded trim around all the edges.

The motifs in these bags have been revived from the elder women of the local Bedouin tribe, preserving a cultural tradition that has almost become extinct with adoption of mass-produced goods from Asia.

FanSina, Arabic for “Art of the Sinai”, is located in the small village of St. Catherine in South Sinai, Egypt. Established in 2002, it is a social enterprise that offers a way for more than 400 women in a deeply conservative culture to contribute economically to their families’ needs. It is managed by a local Bedouin woman, Selema Gabaly.
