Honeydews are typically warm honeys used during winter months. Rich in micronutrients, in iron and in minerals, they help fight fatigue and anemia and are very popular among athletes and senior people.

Artisanal Boxes
The Honey Dippers
Other Creations

Artisanal Boxes

L'Atelier du Miel has partnered with design agency 1000YearsOld to create a range of exclusive artisanal boxes to present its honey products.

L'Atelier du Miel  promotes craftsmanship by creating these unique handmade boxes in partnership with local artisans with only natural products and promotes sustainability by creating objects that can last a lifetime and serve for many purposes - one of which we encourage is to use the boxes to plant seeds and help biodiversity in cities.

The Jezzine Firebird

The tradition of this Jezzine craft goes back to the 18th century when the first legendary bird was sculpted in a buffalo horn. Synonymous of this Southern city, Jezzine's cutlery is characterized by hand made ornamental details that make its reputation.

While quite impressive, the full 135-piece table service has always missed a honey spoon – a situation to which L'Atelier du Miel in partnership with Jezzine's artisans just found a solution to!

Kalamoun Hand Worked Brass

One should have the soul of an explorer to find the few remaining brass workshops in Lebanon.

In Kalamoun, center of brass smith work, artisans equipped with heavy hammers shape this metal that is then used by the greatest architects, watchmakers and cooks.

L'Atelier du Miel has created this brass honey spoon in tribute to this noble metal and to the blacksmiths that work with it.

Glass blowing, an art nowadays widespread among artisans worldwide, finds its origin in the southern city of Sarafand where this millenary technique was invented by the Phoenicians.

The elegance of the glass blower, as rigorous in his task as the foraging bee, as he picks up a fireball to transform it into impressive shapes and colors reminds us of the nobility of ancient professions and of manual work.

L'Atelier du Miel's blown glass honey spoon connects us back to these 2,000 years of history.

Tripoli Mosaique Wood

If there is a single art that has entered every Lebanese home, it would have to be the handcrafted wood mosaic work.
