Gemmayzeh, Beirut district

Salim Azzam grew up in the Lebanese mountain village of Bater-Al Chouf, and local folklore and traditions play a key role in his work. Exquisitely embroidered by local craftswomen, each piece tells what the designer refers to as a ‘moveable story’. Seeking inspiration in his community’s mate nights; an event where friends and relatives gather together to drink a bitter herbal drink of the same name, Azzam looks to preserve and celebrate local legends through his creations.
