BECOMING A MEMBER
The British Lebanese Business Group (BLBG) promotes business links between British and Lebanese organizations, enterprises and entrepreneurs for the mutual benefit of both countries through its commitment to regular meetings, guest speakers, communications and liaison with the British Embassy.
The next BLBG meeting is in our usual location the Radisson Blu Martinez.
But for once, the DAY has CHANGED. The meeting will be on Thursday 13th March, starting at the usual time of 6:30pm
Every home and most offices have them. Most of the time, we walk over them without giving them a second thought. Stories of the magic, travelling variety have seeped into many cultures beyond their Middle Eastern origin. Yes, we are talking about oriental carpets. Nivine Maktabi is passionate about carpets, not only does she travel the orient searching for the best, she designs them too and then markets them all through her Oumnia store. And when she is not doing that she talks about them.
Nivine has generously agreed to share with us her insights into the
history and imagery of the oriental carpet and the industry that these
beautiful objects have spawned.
