The Under $200 Holiday Edit✨
We’re firm believers in quantity over quality, especially when it comes to pieces you’ll love to wear for years to come. But gifting at a premium price? Not our style. That’s why for this holiday season, we rounded up four of our favorite designers and paired them with everyone you’ll want to shop for—including yourself.
For the It Girl
Push the boundaries with Be-Indie, a street-style-inspired line of bleach-and-dip-dyed structured denim meticulously crafted in Egypt. Each piece is thoughtfully designed with clever, intentional details, like beige outer stitching on light blue stonewashed cotton or Americana straight leg jeans with hand-distressed double hems.
For the Artist
Zaid Farouki originally made waves for his bespoke, hand painted dresses. But his latest line is of a different tone. Zaid by Zaid Farouki is a contemporary unisex collection of perfectly balanced, ultra-wearable basics—we’re talking crisp shirts, tailored trousers, and flowy wrap tops—in pops of bright, unconventional colors with hand-stitched embroidery accents.
For The Trendsetter
For us, trendy doesn’t mean cheap—or expensive. Enter REDU, a line of sustainable, handmade bags featuring classic shapes—like the all-too-cool baguette or ‘60s-inspired mini top handle—drenched in modern colors and unexpected textures like embossed crocodile. They’re effortlessly cool, and affordably priced.
For Yourself (Because, Obviously)
Bold, modular & carefully crafted, Laién’s pieces are made sustainably with materials like sterling silver and natural abalone shell, and are meant to detach and adjust to suit your outfit or mood. Each unique piece is flexible, which is exactly what Laién means in Arabic.
Shopping our gift guide means you’re supporting independently owned, rising middle eastern designers who take conscious crafting seriously. Every line we carry is thoughtfully created in the middle east using time-honored techniques like hand-stitching, dip dying, and sustainably made materials for quality pieces that last.
