Atharna x Brownbook

Our collaboration with Brownbook enables us to dive deeper into the worlds of heritage, craft and culture and present you with a range of archive and exclusive features to broaden your knowledge and open your perspective to the great diversity of the Middle East. 

The Atharna x Brownbook collaboration emerged from a place of shared ideals and the belief  that a new narrative needs to be told about the culture and heritage of the Middle East. We are so honoured to work with people who embody the same values as we do and hope that you find the fruit of our collaboration as insightful and interesting as we do.
