MakladWali creates contemporary handmade leather bags that combine a minimalist aesthetic with a playful energy. Our designs are attractive, fashionable, modern and functional. The details we invent make our products beautiful and useful.
We are committed to creating bags that utilize the best Egyptian craftsmanship in terms of materials, design and manufacture. We source our leather from the best Egyptian tanneries and are committed to using natural Egyptian fabrics in all our designs. We produce our bags in the best leather workshops in Cairo. While we strive to find good quality Egyptian accessories, we unfortunately sometimes end up losing this battle.
Our designs pay homage to traditional craftsmanship in Egypt in a way that makes them relevant to contemporary urban lifestyles. We learn about and from traditional crafts that have thrived in different parts of Egypt so as to develop a fresh take on them and be able to integrate them into designs that are created for present day lifestyle.
