Cultural house to preserve Armenian traditions in Lebanon
November 18, 2012 | 13:17
A pink house situated among the narrow streets of Burj Hammoud,
Lebanon, has compiled piece-by-piece the relics of the country’s
Armenian-style carpets hang in the dining room alongside elaborately
woven satchels, which Armenian monks filled with salt and carried on
their solitary trips more than 100 years ago.
Nearly all the items, including the hand-embroidered pomegranate on
the napkins to the abstract iron sculpture on the second floor, carry
a story of Armenian heritage, The Daily Star informs.
The house will serve in preserving traditional trades, skills and
foods for younger generations.
