About Us

Sand & Lily is a fashion house that was founded in Egypt, in 2018. We are on a mission to create unique luxury clutches and handbags that allow women to express themselves through the bags they wear. The aim is to bring our slogan to life in every collection “A clutch is a canvas for art & self-expression.” We are, proudly, an Egyptian brand that works in partnership with the finest craftsmanships from Italy, Spain and Portugal, creating limited collections. The brand name represents two extremes; the sand is messy, scruffy, free and creatively-shaped in so many ways while the Lily is a delicate flower, classy and beautifully withholds itself. The Sand being the creativity and unique artwork the artist puts in her designs, while the Lily represents the brand's quality and posh look. The elements represent the characters of both Sandy Nashed and Liliane Antoun, the brand’s founders. Growing up, Sandy and Liliane were heavily influenced by the richness of Egyptian heritage and their travels around the world brining unique designs just for you lovely ladies.

After completing her MBA in the UK, she began her career, in Egypt, as a management consultant, spending 15 years in corporate life and working on several iconic national and global projects. In 2018, she decided to quit the corporate life and venture into the fashion world. All she knew, then, was that she loved clutches more than any other accessory, Sand & Lily gave her wings to freely express her creativity and passion. Liliane, born to an Egyptian-Lebanese family, she has always had a passion for tailoring. She used to design, tailor and embroider her own clothes since the age of 16.
