10 July 2024

In the bustling heart of Beirut, BAAL stands as a standard of craftsmanship and quality in the world of leather goods on a global scale. This exceptional brand is not just about producing leather items; it’s about creating pieces that reflect passion, respect for materials, and a commitment to sustainability and excellence.

In-House Production: A Commitment to Quality

One of the defining features of BAAL is its dedication to in-house production. Every piece of leather goods that bears the BAAL name is meticulously crafted within their own facilities. This approach ensures a high level of quality control, allowing BAAL to maintain their rigorous standards of excellence. From the initial design phase to the final product, every step is carefully managed to create leather goods that are not only beautiful but also durable and functional.

Passion for Leather Craftsmanship

The team at BAAL is composed of artisans who are deeply passionate about leather craftsmanship and have interacted with leather through generations either as shoe-makers or leather functionality designers. This passion is made evident in every stitch, cut, and design element of their products. Every BAAL team member brings years of experience and a deep understanding of leather-working techniques to their craft. Their dedication goes beyond mere production; it is about honoring a tradition of excellence and pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved with leather.

“We don’t just make leather goods; we create pieces of art. Each item we produce is a testament to our dedication and love for the craft.  It’s who we are and what we honour” says Khajak Krikorian, Managing Director at BAAL.

Respect for Raw Materials

At BAAL, there is a profound respect for the raw materials we work with. The selection of leather is a meticulous process, ensuring only the finest hides are chosen. This respect extends to the treatment and processing of the leather, where environmentally conscious practices are employed. By valuing the raw materials, BAAL not only creates superior products but also promotes sustainability in their operations.

“Our respect for the leather we use is paramount. We believe that every side has a story, and it’s our job to honor that story by creating something beautiful and lasting,” shares Khajak Krikorian.

Conscious Internal Practices

BAAL’s commitment to excellence is not limited to their products but is ingrained in their internal practices. The company operates with a conscious approach, ensuring that every aspect of their production process reflects their values. From ethical sourcing of materials to sustainable production methods, BAAL is dedicated to making a positive impact on both the environment and the community. This conscientious approach is a testament to our belief that great products come from a great work environment.

“At BAAL, we are like a family. We support each other and work together towards a common goal: to create the best leather products while being mindful of our environmental impact,” notes Hasmig Krikorian, Project Manager at BAAL.

Translating Passion into the Final Product

The passion and dedication of the BAAL team are reflected in the final products. Each item is a testament to their commitment to quality, sustainability, and excellence. Whether it’s a magazine holder, towel tray, or any other room/hospitality accessory, BAAL’s products are designed to last, becoming highly appreciated items for those in the luxury hospitality industry who value the beauty and craftsmanship of genuine leather goods.

“Seeing our products in the hands of happy customers is incredibly rewarding. It’s a reminder that our hard work and dedication truly make a difference,” says Hasmig Krikorian.

In a world where mass production often compromises quality, BAAL stands out as a brand that prioritizes craftsmanship, sustainability, and a deep respect for materials.
