“I travel because it makes me realize how much I haven’t seen, how much I’m not going to see and how much I still need to see.” – Carew Papritz

All of the collections are inspired by the designer’s travels. She admires all the different cultures and tries to mix them with Oriental and Lebanese ones through her work.


Atelier Nanou implements sustainable plans in both of its production and operational methods. The brand minimizes waste by re-using remaining fabrics and designs. Some of the styles are made of vintage materials or organic fabrics.
