Inspiration of the month: Marielle Khayat

Marielle has been in the innovation, design and entrepreneurship field for 7 years now. After her studies in Management, she left Lebanon and moved around China and the US  before settling in Paris.

Throughout her travels, she stayed passionate about highlighting the good things happening in Lebanon. In 2012, she co-wrote Losing Touch, a book about the disappearing Lebanese trades, that depicted the lives of the trade workers of Beirut. The success of this experience was yet another proof of how much power the Lebanese can draw from their love of the country.

Today, she is still convinced that being far does not mean being disconnected, and so Koullouna was born!

Koullouna is a box that features 6-7 local Lebanese artisans and producers under a specific theme each month. The best part about the box is that every month a percentage is given to a local initiative or NGO.
