Khaizaran

Weaving tales: handcrafted straw and wood Khaizaran chairs are central to Lebanese family life, community and culture. 

Alexandra Hakim’s childhood memories of traditional chairs under the pine trees of her grandmother’s house in Lebanon bring a deeply personal and nostalgic element to the Khaizaran collection. Each piece of jewellery showcases the intricately woven patterns of a now-dying craft and ever more distant way of life – while casting a beautiful, abstract shadow against the body when worn.
