This is a top-handle classic-style handbag, elegant and conservative and sure to fit your needs.


Originally designed with a customer in mind, the Mernan has since been made available to order. At 26cm wide, 21cm high and 10cm deep (10.2” x 8.3” x 3.9”), it is the perfect size for travel, meetings, or an evening out. With a zippered interior pocket and discreet hidden lock, this bag features a flap closure and is lined with soft goatskin. The single curved handle makes for easy transportation, and the metal feet on the bottom ensure the underside is never scuffed and helps extend the life of the leather. 


Handmade in Kuwait, each Mernan takes about 65 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.
