The three-generation BlattChaya team.

BlattChaya’s headquarters in Dekwaneh, in Beirut, is one of the loveliest places I have been in Lebanon. Immediately upon entering, the office/factory of Lebanon’s only handmade artisanal cement tiles feels and smells like home, even for a stranger.

Below I have attached the PDFs of a story published for Lebanese magazine, RagMag, with photos from Osie Greenway, about Edgard Chaya’s passion for tiles that revived a family business and solidified a trademark that will be continued for generations to come. I hope you enjoy reading this story as much as I enjoyed writing and reporting it. (If you can’t read from the screenshots, click here: BLATTCHAYA)
