Todays breakfast is the dynamic designer duo, Omar and Mohamed Kabbani; Graphic design entrepreneurs, and street design fanatics who have climbed their way to the top.
Before I graduated, there was a lot of talk on these two identical twins. Their talent: arabic graffiti, something we hear very little of these days. They slowly discovered their talent as their career unravelled, and unfolded their entity into a brand known as: Ashekman
If you weren’t brought up in Beirut, Lebanon; the name of this brand might be very foreign to the ear & common tongue; but Ashekman to the Beirut slang culture simply means ‘Exhaust Pipe’. Their one common reference to everything street related.
If your intrigued by street art talent, Ashekman is definitely your go to store. Their graphic t-shirts are eclectic, colorful and fresh.
Aside from their t-shirts however, their window display is definitely something to check out. If you do happen to be in the neighborhood by Hamra, Beirut, Lebanon check out their life size toolbox; where it conveniently displays the nitty gritty tools to both your car engine, shirts and street art.
Love the tools, and the pun intended;
let me know what you think.
