L'artisan du Liban
Our Mission is to Keep Culture Alive and Artisans Active
L’artisan du Liban was created in 1979 by the non-profit organization, Mouvement Social, whose mission is to work towards a more just and humane world. We work for the social and economic development of local Lebanese artisans by providing sustainable solutions that help support artistry and preserve the cultural traditions of craft. Since our creation, we have supported more than 1000 artisans across the Lebanese territory, mostly in remote rural areas, and saved several crafts from extinction.
We are not only involved in designing, developing and selling but we also often locate and train rural artisans who are searching for ways to support themselves and their families. The types of artisans we partner with come from communities located all over Lebanon and these can range from well-established workshops to the independent women working from home. As we put the human at the center of our business, we value our cultural heritage as an essential expression of our beliefs and traditions.
