Salma El Sayed, Asma El Husseini and Basma El Bittar are the brains behind 3al Canvas – an up and coming creative brand with an original name. These three art majors and friends introduced Cairo to the brand with a collection of beach bags, but this is only the beginning. After talking to Asma, one of the founders, she shared with me their interesting ideas moving forward from creating beach mats to pillows in fun prints to t-shirts with artistic slogans and illustrations.
The collection of beach bags already launched, are not your ordinary plastic beach bags that your mother used to carry Banana Boat sunscreen in or that you see all over the place in floral prints, but canvas bags printed with different fashion illustrations drawn by each of the founders. From the varied collection one can detect a sense of youthfulness while maintaining an air of femininity. They are approximately 40cmx40cm with colorful trims and bright inside linings. The one feature in particular that makes these bags even more to die for, are the chunky ropes handles. Manufactured locally at Masna3 Lotfy, the quality is unmatched and carries the proud 100% made in Egypt.
Here are our favorites!
The bags will soon be available on style-treasure.com & are also available at Art Café in Maadi.
