Handbag Designer Uses Stamps in Her New Creations

Reporter Olivia Alabaster writes on the Daily Star website, "Drawing inspiration from her stamp collection, handbag designer Astrid Honein used images of vintage Lebanese stamps in her latest offering. 'Greetings from Lebanon' marks Honein’s sixth collection, but the first to be exhibited publicly.

Alabaster goes on to pen, "The vintage stamps, from the ’50s and ’60s, which depict the cedar tree, or cherries, also feature on a range of loose-fitting cotton T-shirts ($45), which would go perfectly with denim shorts for the beach, or could even be dressed up with trousers and high heels."

Honein is quoted in the piece as saying, "“I really loved this image from the stamps, and I’ve just been obsessed with using it in my work."
