The Art Behind
a Family Legacy

A long time ago Antoine Karam used to import embroidered house linen from Italy and Germany. When he married his wife, Sonia, they decided to start their own business where they could take their expertise and experience and put it to good practice. Starting with only one embroidery machine and some skilled craftswomen, recognition rapidly grew. Moving to larger premises to meet the ever increasing demand, this once modest business became the largest of its type in the Levant with a shop in Ashrafieh, Beirut and a large client base encompassing Gulf Royalty and renowned 5-Star Hotels. As the years passed Antoine and Sonia’s daughter, Jowan, and two sons, Anthony and Badih, joined the family business. Jowan has been actively involved from an early age and is now in charge of the design and regional marketing and sales while Anthony and Badih are responsible for the local market and buying the raw materials. Every year the family members attend prestigious international fairs in the US and Europe to promote their heart-felt enterprise.


Since 1968 Antoine Karam has been weaving an elegant legacy of high- quality house linen. With every stitch this family business has established a name synonymous with attention to detail, fine tradition and an unparalleled ability to meet and surpass expectations. Located in the heart of Hazmieh, Lebanon, Antoine Karam embodies refinement and luxury. Here our factory, with its 70 employees and designers, transform craft into art. This art can be felt and experienced in the softness of lush materials like Swiss linen, cotton satin, linen, voile and distinctive handmade Swiss lace and sensationally lavish products like magnificent tablecloths, terry towels, bed sheets and much more. Today Antoine Karam upholds a distinguished reputation for style, excellence and the talent to create unique signature patterns for clients in Lebanon, the Gulf and the rest of the world. The House of Antoine Karam’s ‘home couture’ line has attracted many loyal clients who have been using our expertise for over 30 years.

Wrapped in Finesse

Our reputation has been ‘embroidered’ with tablecloths suitable for refined china and majestic weddings; sheets; bed covers; napkins; place mats; bath mats; terry towels; embroidered curtains and grand decorative items like wedding trousseaus. We also offer items especially designed for kids. Using only the finest materials from Europe (Italy, Switzerland and France) we bring cotton satin, French organdy, silk, voile and linen to life. Focusing on attention to detail, we use DMC threads in our creations. The House of Antoine Karam’s famous embroidery covers many styles from modern to classical, all created with dedication and a meticulous touch.

More Than A Process,
An Art Form

At Antoine Karam, personalization is our forte. When a client comes to us, we carefully take into consideration their specific needs. This is why we have custom-made services and not just ready-to-buy luxury products. All our renowned custom-made work is possible thanks to the exceptional patience, skill and talent of our individual seamstresses, embroiderers and artists. For custom-made items, we meticulously select the colors and threads to best suit the client’s interiors (we even go as far as to personality visit the client to see the interior), cut the chosen material, draw the preferred or especially fashioned design and then make the house linen creation either totally hand-made or machine guided by hand or machine made. We then luxuriously pack the finished product and deliver it to our clients.
