Preserving a traditional house by giving it new relevance

House of Cashmere founders¬† (a Scandinavian couple who came to Lebanon and got attached to the Mediterranean way of life) have converted a traditional Lebanese house in Ain Aar (Bikfaya road, Mount Lebanon) into a charming cashmere and leather accessory shop. With the owners’ kind permission, we were allowed to post the inside pictures of the HoC store just to show the enduring charm of an old Lebanese house, should one decide to give it a new purpose, be it a shop, gallery, school, museum, boutique hotel or workshop.

To Lebanese of the world and fans of Lebanon, work with us to save what’s left of these immortal (but sadly vulnerable) houses in Lebanon and mostly Beirut! Dont underestimate your help as an individual, you will always make a difference!
