This is the bag that set the course for Barwa to be what it is today. Just the right size for all of your essentials, this sharp-lined bag will take you from elegant evening out on the town out to a casual brunch the next day.


The Mayada features two short handles and one long shoulder strap, a triangular-shaped top with a hidden magnet closure, a zippered middle layer pocket, and a goatskin lining. The metal feet on the bottom ensure the underside is never scuffed and extends the life of the leather. At 30cm wide, 18cm high and 10cm deep (11.8” x 7” x 3.9”), you can easily pack your phone, wallet, lipstick, and keys and still have plenty of room for your sunglasses case and a notebook.


Sturdy, beautiful and hand-stitched in Kuwait, each individual bag takes about 80 hours to create. Customize your bag by selecting a webbing strap or leather strap in the length desired (standard is 120cm/47”); opt for either silver or gold hardware; and determine your exterior and interior leathers and thread colour. Choose to personalize it even further by adding your initials to the clochette.


The leather of each Barwa piece is unique to its usage, so the end purpose of an item will dictate the type of material chosen. Leather is selected based on aesthetic, feel, texture, and sometimes smell, as well as how it will handle day to day.
