Social Enterprise

The social enterprise houses four socially-conscious brands  all of which are sold locally at a boutique in Beirut Souks; and online through the online store, The eCommerce platform serves as a foundation for Creative Space Beirut’s alumni, in terms of increasing their exposure while featuring their collabor ations and attracting work opportunities. The enterprise promotes equal opportunities within the creative sector, and works to make the design world more accessible to talented individuals who lack the resources to pursue a career in design due to elitist industry modes. Ultimately, it is a way for the proactive generation to engage in methods of conscious consumerism. When purchasing any of the items available either on or at the boutique, customers are effectively helping to pave the way towards a more inclusive and ethical industry. Furthermore, the enterprise contributes directly to the free, non-profit school for fashion design, Creative Space Beirut. The sister organizations share resources, spaces, rent and utilities, and also share a management team. While the social enterprise covers the team’s salaries, a percentage of its profits is donat- ed to Creative Space Beirut each year, and therefore contributes to the growth and sustainability of the school.

CSB-SHOP is a platform for socially conscious brands.

Each brand, unique in its identity, is part of an ecosystem developed to sustain and evolve Creative Space Beirut, a non-profit, free school for fashion design based in Beirut, Lebanon. A percentage of each sale is donated to the school, which means when you purchase an item from any of our brands, you are contrib- uting to the education of talented aspiring designers.

The products offered on our platform are locally produced in Lebanon, under ethical standards and practices, and more often than not utilize donated or stock fabric.

We collaborate with various venues and partners to host fundraising parties that donate all profits to Creative Space Beirut.
