I (Jan) never knew what an oil cloth was till Carinne Abou-Huguet, Owner of Keen Bags, explained to me. The oil cloth is basically the plastic looking material that you see in most of the Keen bag products (note the shiny bits on the Keen bags in the photos below).
The Oil cloth actually keep the bags waterproof. Great idea if you are going to the beach or you live in a tropical climate (which thankfully the UAE is not, though a bit of rain doesn’t hurt in the winter months).
When asked why Keen Bags, Carinne mentioned that her mother used to call her Keen when she was a child. “And that’s how I decided to name my bags collection as KeenBags.”
Bags, wallets and pouches. Oilcloth, cotton, vinyl and velvet. Details for comfort and chic.
Keen Bags have their own workshop in Dubai, where you can visit to have your own bags customised.
