The Arabic calligraphy writing "بيروت، قلب لبنان" was the literal translation of of the phrase "Beirut, the heart of Lebanon". Lebanon is a very diverse country with a rich history. Beirut summarises the diversity and history in one place. The Lebanese cedar tree was used as a unique symbol of Lebanon that transcends politics and religion.
Arabic writing is usually viewed with suspicion and fear as many people associate it unjustifiably with terrorism. Thus, through showing the beauty of Arabic writing and Arabic calligraphy via printing it on hippie T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, tank tops, mugs, canvas, tote cotton bags, and mouse pads; we hope to change the perception of Arabic writing towards admiration and appreciation.
