Today, we invite you on a journey to uncover the inspiring tale behind our brand's visionary Emirati Founder, Fatma Al Otaiba, and the profound influences that shape her unique design philosophy.

Emirati entrepreneur, Fatma Al Otaiba, had a dream that she nurtured for a decade - to create her line of luxury handbags.

ODEEM's design inspirations are deeply woven into the rich tapestry of Emirati culture. The brand celebrates the allure of traditional Emirati art and architecture infusing these elements into every bag's design. Fatma also draws inspiration from the allure of "film noir," breathing new life into classic designs by employing diverse textures, elegant finishes, and meticulous proportions. Her journey began four years ago when she decided to convert her vision into reality. Overcoming challenges in an unfamiliar industry, she worked tirelessly to perfect her prototypes and ensure each piece met her high standards of quality. The fusion of these influences yields handcrafted leather bags that narrate a story of culture and timeless elegance.
