INSPIRATION / MY BEIRUT

{made in Lebanon}

Lebanon is booming with creative and productive spirits. Be it in the food business (home baking, chocolate, organic, olive oil…) or artifacts, home accessories,  fashion design, the flow is unlimited…

Buying local should become our first gesture, if not by instinct then by default. It is worth it, price wise, quality wise, creativity wise and lets also add the footprint aspect, where buying locally produced food or items is much more environmentally friendly and politically correct.

In the spirit of pushing people to know more about our {made in Lebanon} label, my aim is to discover and introduce interesting creations and produces from my surroundings, blog about them, not only to share the experience but also to connect and start making people aware of the endless possibilities we do have just under our nose.

Today I will introduce “Caprice de Fil“, a newly upstarted business focusing on a very much neglected field, hand embroidery and “point de croix” . Work that takes hours and hours of detailed and fine tuned hand work. It requires inspiration, patience and the outcome is all the most precious and lovely.

The works of Caprice de Fil are found at their newly opened shop, within a stone’s throw of the northern outskirts of Beirut, in Rabieh. Details can be found on their facebook page, together with a myriad of their creations (see below).
