New Showroom Product! Handwoven Bedoubags September 22 2014, 0 Comments
Just in time for our Fall Festival Sale, we are introducing a new product line that we are super excited about. bedoubags! If you have been in Aqaba you may have seen them at Souq By the Sea, but now you can purchase them in Amman, Jordan in our showroom.
There is a lot of story to share about these bags, but for now here is a quick snapshot. bedoubags was an initiative of Sandra Jelly, a Holland native living in Jordan. She saw beauty and fashion in a traditional tribal handicraft and bedoubags was created.
Sandra works alongside six women from the Huadat tribe in Udruth, 20 KM from Petra, to design and hand-weave bags and purses. The women work from home so that they are able to continue to work the land, take care of the animals, and to care for their often large families.
From beginning to end, bedoubags are intricately designed, handmade, and inspected for quality. These women are using a traditional handicraft in new ways to support their families well. Additionally, it is just fun. Women are getting together, discussing designs and colors with smiles and creativity. We love it!
For those of you who are reading the blog and asking, "When can we get these bags outside of Jordan?" Send us a quick request at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and we can send you back additional photos and pricing. These ladies are always designing new products and new bag designs. We should soon have more purses and bags for you to look at.
