Her line started to grow- up and her handbags were displaced in prestigious shops in Lebanon and outside her country of origin, her design were not only glamorous but also "Souvenir" for Lebanese abroad and foreigners.

Chirine Karam, designer and founder of the brand was always fascinated by fashion and her idea was born at a university within a project in Paris as a "fashion consultant" at “Ecole de Paris de Conseil en Image”. From one bag to many other pieces the idea was grown-up and the trademark was registered in September 2013.

Coming from an unsafe country however rich in history, Lebanon is a great place to get inspired either by the Lebanese population and their perseverance to rise again throughout the numerous conflicts or either by the important heritage left from previous generations. Designing handbags and decorating them by sewing patterns and handmade accessories is a fruit of all this multifaceted inspiration. Moreover, her style is a reflection of the Lebanese complex society, especially Lebanese woman who is famous for her beauty and her sophistic taste.
