Okhtein, which means two sisters, was launched in 2013 by Aya and Mounaz Abdelraouf and has gone on to reach A-list heights.

Beyoncé sported one of its bags in 2018 and, since then, celebrities like Brazilian fashion influencer Camila Coelho and Canadian model Winnie Harlow have been spotted with Okhtein arm candy.
