Beach season is in full swing, and we’ve already got our swimwear sorted out for the summer. But if there’s one thing we neglect when planning for the beach, it’s our bags. How do you find a bag that's both stylish AND durable? You either end up forgetting entirely to take an appropriate bag with you for the beach, or you can’t find anything nearly as cute as the swimsuit you just bought. Well one brand is here to change that with their gorgeous, multi-purpose bags.ByN Designs was launched in August last year by interior designer Nada El Fawal, who spoke to Cairo Scene about what got her started. “I've always been passionate about design. I took a fashion design course and I started designing some pieces for myself and I got a lot of compliments so I decided to take it to the next level.”
Strategically based in Alexandria, El Fawal finds inspiration in colors, textures, and her coastal home city. The designer prides herself in keeping everything about her bags local; from the materials she uses to the team of craftsmen who expertly bring her designs to life. The bags themselves come in a variety of different designs, from backpacks to totes, and El Fawal doesn’t limit herself when it comes to the materials she uses, with bags made of leather, nylon, straw, and lace. And the best part? The bags are so versatile they can be used for anything, not just the beach. We know where we’re getting our next bag from.
