What | Dikkéni offers a window into the studios of socially conscious creatives. As a group of employed entrepreneurs, we have come together to support emerging talent and enable them to grow. We curate a selection of unique, handcrafted art, accessories and homeware made by independent artists, artisans and designers. Founded in London, and made in Lebanon, each collection is driven by the purpose of supporting socially-active creatives and local, community-focused NGOs.
Who | Founded by a small team of women with 9-5 jobs, we have committed ourselves to applying the same dedication our work day sees to the operations of Dikkéni. We are volunteering our early mornings, lunch breaks and evenings to build a platform that supports its brands and artists in reaching their full potential. Dikkéni is a project fueled by passion and hard work, offering a concept store that values purpose rather than personal profit.
Why | Consumers are forced to choose between aesthetics, price and ethics. We offer a curated selection that delivers on all three. We carry social enterprises pioneering small-scale production and sustainability so that you can purchase what you love with a clean conscience. As Lebanese expatriates, we have experienced different cultures that have broadened our perspectives on life. Creativity and craft are embedded in Lebanese culture. A rich heritage combined with a multicultural society has made Lebanon a natural home for artists and creatives. Many young social enterprises focused on unifying craft and sustainability have emerged, and we at Dikkéni want to support the creatives driving this movement.
