“My Lebanon is a flock of birds fluttering in the early morning as shepherds lead their sheep into the meadow and rising in the evening as farmers return from their fields and vineyards. You have your Lebanon and its people. I have my Lebanon and its people.”- Khalil Gibran
The importance of the Mediterranean lies in its wide contribution to the philosophy, art, music, religion, architecture, and science of the modern world. Sharing and featuring the beauty of a culture and civilization that goes back to 1500 B.C. is a great pride of OURS. Lebanon, homeland of the Phoenician civilization, is where the alphabet was born, particularly in one of the strongest Phoenician city states, Byblos. The Phoenicians were sea masters and skilled manufacturers who spread their trade to “the world”. It is by no surprise that this mastership was handed down from one generation to the next only to produce some of the finest products in the world like olive oil, honey, soap and art, just to name a few….
I invite you to experience what Lebanon has to offer; whether it’s a book that takes you on an enlightening journey, a piece of art with a distinctive identity, a tasteful product that your buds won’t resist or a unique gift that tells the craftsmanship of an artisan… you will be totally engaged!
