Located at the eastern entrance of the Old Souk, the "Artisanat" was established in 1938 and transformed in 1960 into a school for learning loom weaving. Mrs. Eddeh (wife of the President Emile Eddeh) who contributed in the establishment of the "artisanat" used to visit weavers and craftsman in their house, and encourage them by selling their work.

After shutting down the main center of the artisanat in Beirut during the war, the artisanat in Zouk turned to be the attractive place for the supporters of handmade production.

The "artisanat" is nowadays the place where all kinds of Lebanese crafts are displayed for sale. Its major purpose is to support and encourage artisans and to preserve the Lebanese heritage.
