The Bayrut Express

Eco Friendly Concept Store in the Heart of Sassine

The Bayrut Express is a Twisted Urban Concept Store that sells an eclectic range of the latest fashion items related to environmental, recycled and green causes.

A stone throw from Sassine, the Bayrut Express has successfully managed to blend cutting edge, funky and fashionable with sustainable. Owner Ziad Dagher feels strong about environmental causes and it shows in his shop – the shop fittings are either recycled or upcycled, always funky, eye-catching and innovative. The front area is greened up with fake grass, real plants and wooden tables.

From early summer on, a wide range of summer wear, including imported, high quality Italian, Brazilian or Colombian swim wear for men and women, Maajiswimwear from Colombia is on display. There furthermore are scarves and wraps, to add to the beach outing, as well as Spektre sunglasses, Nomadic sandals, handmade Maaji Espadrilles – one tree is planted with every shoe – Havaianas sandals, the colourful Inkka shoes to be worn all year round, sturdy recycled beach bags and to top it off – legendary Borsalino hats.

The Bayrut Express also stocks a few accessories brands such as VirginStone Nautical Ropes Bracelets from the US and the eye-catching Mishky Jewelry from Colombia.

At the same time, not forgetting local initiatives, Dagher always has the best of ready-wear upcycled or Lebanese-designed items. Among these are the remarkable pipebrothers lamps – industrial (desk) lighting made out of metal pipes and the pioneering VEA Wear range. It is indeed hard to believe when touching the perfectly finished rubbery men’s and women’s bags, wallets or jewellery items that the raw materials used are cleaned and upcycled rubber tyre tubes.

Bayrut Express is a fun shopping experience where you can spoil yourself or your loved ones and feel good about supporting worthy local or international projects. It’s also a good place to look for presents to bring (back) from Lebanon, such as the Luanatic mugs with nice local designs and Arabic slogans (“Saba7o”/”Good Morning”) or the intricate and beautiful Mouchmouch wooden mobile phone covers.
