Amid cold and rain, local artisans lined the walkways of Downtown's Beirut Souks to exhibit an array of goods on the opening day of Afkart, the "Designers' Christmas Fair".With accessories, clothing and ceramics, the small booths decked out in fairy-lights glittered in the glow of light from the large international brand stores of the Souks.Like many other vendors at Afkart, Chahal mostly sells her work at the numerous street festivals held throughout the year.Joanna and Melissa Azar, twin sisters who founded the brand Jumell, presented their arts, crafts and paintings on the opening day.Although the opening afternoon moved slowly with few visitors, the sellers talked, discussing business and shared items.
