‘Dikkeni’ is nonprofit platform showcasing emerging Lebanese artists, artisans and designers. Founded by a small group of women at initiative incubator Impact Lebanon, we were able to capitalise on the diverse skill set and expertise amongst the group to build our concept from the ground up.
The ongoing political and economic crisis has put a strain on many creatives, who thought about shutting their doors, halting their production and emigrating. By showcasing the impeccable craftsmanship and talent of Lebanese talent to a new market, we hope to encourage them to keep Beirut’s pulse beating.
Our curation merges social impact with design, featuring a selection of handcrafted pieces and art. Consumers are forced to choose between aesthetics, price and ethics. We offer a curated selection that delivers on all three. We feature social enterprises pioneering small-scale production and sustainability so that you can purchase what you love with a clean conscience.

- Support Local Production: Each purchase enables our brands to continue producing locally.
- Support Emerging Talent: We feature independent talent that put their heart and soul into each creation they make.
