Welcome to orient 499

who we are

The vision of Orient 499 is to create sustainable luxury using the most exquisite handicraft legacies in our region. We strongly believe that our intention in promoting ethical fashion and handcrafted items will play a promising role for society, as it provides support to those who have been forgotten by modern production; especially if they are from smaller communities or villages all over Lebanon.
With these beliefs firmly rooted within us -handmade products made by skilled artisans locally-, there's no better way than passing on luxury craftsmanship to the world!
