“Let the good stuff express itself through your being. Radiate it with confidence and a smile. Be loyal to yourself on your journey, as a wise saying says, loyalty is royalty.”

– SALLY SARIEDDINE, FOUNDER.

 

Inspired by the meticulous work of master craftsmen and an exceptional regard for exquisite, ethically sourced local materials, Sarieddine’s vision gave life to the bespoke, retro-chic handbag label in 2009. Launching her online boutique via LaLaQueen.com, she subsequently became one of the first designer-owned online stores in the Middle-East.

Why we love LaLaQueen?

– LaLaQueen packaging is 100% recycled and the leather we source comes from Lebanese farms where we know the meat is going back to the meat industry

– In further promoting the spirituality in design, LaLaQueen also actively collaborates with other artists to create unique moments, share design inspiration and drive the cross-pollination of artists genres

– Their handbags are assembled by highly skilled local artisans who operate under healthy working conditions and they are committed to maintaining strong relationships with the suppliers and their employees

– Their designs target progressive women who are influential in making a difference in today’s changing market

– It’s important to them as a home-grown brand to ensure giving back to the community and support the local families of Lebanon

– Sally envisions that as LaLaQueen continues to grow, so will their focus on sustainability
