Liwan Beirut, Beirut, Lebanon
The founders of this fashion and homewares shop debuted their designs, which they have said are inspired by the Oriental nomad’s world unveiled, in their shop of the same name on the Left Bank in Paris. The spirit of their aesthetic, however, has always been in Beirut. You will find embroidered tablecloths, alabaster jars and vases, beaded and copper jewelry, featherweight babouches and fabulous cotton clothing inspired by traditional Middle Eastern styles, but cut with a modern lifestyle in mind.
