Inspired by the raw beauty of natural stone, our 'Midi' bag is handcrafted using discarded plastic. Its light marble-like texture is married with a rotating gold-plated brass handle and is lined with a golden mesh pouch. Transforming this non-renewable waste into ethical luxury, the 'Midi' invites us to reflect on the obsolescence of single-use plastic and the urgency to reconcile with our earth.
Wear it with pride and a smile.

ETHICAL FOCUS & POLICY
design and manufacturing
Local Community Development
100% of the Vanina products are handcrafted in Lebanon, in our ateliers and affiliated workshops. We also collaborate with local NGOs for our sourcing and manufacturing. We follow a closed-loop system of production, guaranteeing full product traceability and ethical processes. Through this, we aim to promote local community development through the valorization of craftsmanship and environmental awareness.
Use of Sustainable & Eco-friendly Materials
Vanina's sourcing policy requires ecological and ethical considerations for the choice of raw materials. Local, natural, or recycled materials are prioritized in order to reduce pollution and carbon emissions. We constantly invest in new material explorations, by merging cutting edge technologies with traditional techniques of production.
Recycling and Up-cycling
A large part of our products are based on the reuse and transformation of discarded materials. This sourcing characteristic aims at contributing to the implementation of better waste management systems in Lebanon, which suffers from alarming levels of pollution and solid waste issues.
