Founded by French-Lebanese sisters Laura and Sophie Tabet, the Beirut Re-Store Marketplace aims to raise money for those still in need after the disastrous blast in the heart of the Lebanese capital caused US$10–15 billion damage in property. The store sells a curated selection of art and design from an array of creatives and aims to fund vetted NGOs that work for immediate aid and long-term recovery.
Among the artists involved, JW Anderson, Harley Weir, and Tyrone Lebon have donated their works spanning a unique and limited edition of photographs, paintings, sculptures, apparel, jewellery, publications, objects and more. The Re-Store Marketplace will run through January 2021 with 100% of the proceeds going to those working in Beirut. Prices of artworks range from £10 to £15,000 (approximately $14 – $24,000 USD). The NGOs included are the Lebanese Red Cross, Lebanese Food Bank, Beit El Baraka, Arcenciel and Ya Byout Beirut. Shop the Beirut Re-Store from October 2 and keep up-to-date with the initiative here.
