Exposed to so many beautifully crafted pieces through her global travels, Amal witnessed and supported so many artisans who continue to employ and pay homage to traditions of exquisite luxury craftsmanship, inspired designs and breathtaking touches of contemporary innovation.
Handmade in Italy, and retaining the spirit of inspiration from such old civilisations’ innovative and luxurious craftsmanship, the Mini-AIDA bag design combines both precision tailoring and admiration of old style “retro” glamour.
Amal designed the Mini-AIDA collection specifically for your more leisure or fun outings. Similar to our convertible NONI iPad/Crossbody/Evening Clutch, the Mini-AIDA bag is designed to be versatile enough for a wide range of styling needs.
The Mini-AIDA can be easily worn with more formal or evening gala dresses, pretty afternoon dresses or simply with a pair of casual jeans for your day about town.
From her view, Amal feels that a woman’s handbag should first and foremost stand out as a piece of unique art – something just a little bit out of the ordinary. Amal feels that carrying the Mini-AIDA Bag should make every woman feel unique, enjoy its “Art-inspired" luxurious feel whilst exuding her own signature style.
Amal feels every woman’s bag should be a bold statement in itself. Amal feels that a woman's bag should, in fact, be the centerpiece to what she may wish to wear that day! Whether it is our current KERMA civilization-inspired Collection today or future designs, our leisure bags will continue to have an artistic flair, always emphasizing craftsmanship and always embodying Amal’s global influences.
Inspiration and Design
To pay homage to the innovations and artisanry of ancient civilizations, this particular collection draws its inspiration from the Ancient Kingdom of Nubia.
In this KERMA Collection, each Mini-Aida remains devoted to inspiration from museum pieces or ancient design influences from - the Sahara with its ebony black sky and its pearl-like glittering stars (Black Looli Mini-Aida), natural earth's purest white stones (White Stone Mini-Aida) and taupe coloured stones (Taupe Pebble Mini-Aida) and from ancient Nubia's love of sparkling semi-precious stones imbued with hues of pearl-like pink and lavender (Lavender Looli Mini-Aida).
With a bit of fun in mind, the Mini-AIDA bags retain the MEDANI concept of functionality with style - with a small interior zip pocket to secure small precious items and a quick access silver tone key-ring holder.
The Mini-AIDA Bag also has a separate zip-bottom compartment to safely secure in place your phone, make-up needs or any other small items you may need for your day or night out.
