Founded in 2009 by siblings and entrepreneurs Zeina and Ahmed Abou Chaaban, Palestyle is a UAE-based luxury brand with a social mission, featuring genuine leather handbags with embroidery and Arabic calligraphy. Having visited refugee camps in Lebanon, the duo formed Palestyle, partnering with refugee women to empower them, and support the art of Palestinian embroidery.

Having helped more than 100 refugee women, the brand also has several social development projects towards the plantation of olive trees to help Palestinian farmers, as well as providing more access to clean water supply, and opening a community library for refugee children. Besides the handbag’s intricate design, the duo also selected Italian leather for its durability and aesthetic.
