“Reflecting the Egyptian spirit is the most important thing in my work. Our heritage is significant to the world so we need to be the first ones to showcase its beauty.”
– Sami Amin
Sami Amin is a self-taught designer and the founder of Sami Amin brand, one of the most prestigious authentic brands in town. His brand has been the strongest player in the Egyptian leather design market ever since its launch in 1997. Having been graduated from the faculty of fine arts helped him capitalize on his talent. His appreciation for arts was the catalyst for a strong designing career to last and his passion for crafting and drawing is so evident in each piece he decides to create.
Sami Amin collections are a blend of being elegant, ethnic and trendy. Being inspired by the Egyptian culture makes his products noticeable, mesmerizes the eyes of whoever sees it, and captures the heart of those who own it. Every collection holds a special story and every piece reflects the beauty around us intricately. He managed to impose brass as an inevitable component of every design and translate normal everyday life ethnic items into charming pieces of art.

Why did our gallery choose Sami Amin?
While visiting Cairo, Egypt and walking through one if its cozy avenues, Sami Amin’s gallery immediately captured our heart and gaze with its beautifully designed and thoughtful pieces. The unique mix of leather, brass, and wood truly reflects the stories, culture, and richness of the Near Eastern world. Hence, Dara Global Arts wanted to be an ambassador to this wonderful and unique art in the Washington Metropolitan area.
