Sibylle Tarazi (b. 1978) is a Lebanese-Italian product designer and artist based in Beirut. She founded her namesake label in 2017, creating handcrafted pieces produced in partnership with excellent local craftsmen and artisans using recycled materials. Her body of work reflects her eclectic life experiences, and her connection to nature, all the while referencing the passing of time. She studied graphic design and fine arts at the American University of Beirut and earned an MA in accessories design with a focus on jewelry from Domus Academy in Milan, Italy. Born to a family of archaeologists, designers, and craftsmen specializing in Middle Eastern art, Tarazi became intimately familiar with different crafts from a very young age. Ultimately, this creative vein and savoir-faire made their way into her own meticulous work. Her pieces have been exhibited in Beirut, Paris, and Milan.
