This gorgeous little Markaz beaded pouch in purple is a wonderful contemporary example of the traditional beaded work typical of the St Catherine area of Southern Sinai in Egypt.
Made entirely by hand by skilled artisans from this beautiful mountainous part of Egypt, this little beaded pouch is not only decorative and pretty, but also useful and multi-functional. Whether you choose to use it for pens, make up or for your phone, you will be carrying a little piece of this ancient Egyptian craft with you.
Markaz is a proudly Egyptian brand with a focus on social enterprise and on reviving and promoting traditional crafts from all over the country, both in Egypt and overseas.
As each piece is made entirely by hand, there are variations in size, pattern and colour which add to its charm and should be considered a mark of the artisan who made it. No two pieces are alike, though many can be grouped or used together beautifully.
