SOLANA makes hand crafted slip on shoes designed by artists from around the world. Each collection features a different culture in collaboration with local artists to create a line that tells the story of that culture. SOLANA debuted with the Lebanon Collection, which features 5 designs and 5 artists, each representing a facet of Lebanon. SOLANA also teamed up with local filmmakers to create a short film that shows a different, more authentic view of the country. Part of the proceeds are donated to a local charity.
For this collection, SOLANA choose to donate to the Malaak Organization that offers free education for Syrian refugees. The shoes are handmade and ethically made by a family run shoe factory in the Armenian quarter of Beirut.

Part of the exhibition EXPER(T)IMENTAL DESIGN by state of DESIGN with over 20 national and international designers. 20. – 23.09. at VOLLGUTLAGER.
