In the city of Beirut, close to the National Museum, lies a hidden gem under a big tree called Luanatic. This shop always brings me hope and joy every time I visit it.
The shop has been open since 2009 and the founder’s designs are the kind of designs that are unique and can be recognized immediately. The illustrations reflect Lebanese culture, and I’d say Beirut is her biggest inspiration. She has several items such as mugs, notebooks, phone cases, keychains, socks, hoodies… I really admire the Katcoot line that is all designed to cater to the society’s need to have engaging Arabic activities inspired by, again, Lebanese culture: from card games to puzzles and even embroidery hoop kits.
Besides the shop, you can always visit Luanatic’s website and shop a click away, but if you visit Luanatic in Beirut, make yourself feel at home and do some coloring at their coloring station right outside the shop.
