About The Workshop DXB

When childhood friends Ahmad Makary and Moe Krayem came together more than seven years ago to experiment with a hand built silk screening machine, neither of them expected it to be the start of a long, creative venture. Joined by an urgent curiosity to learn a new craft and a passion for the DIY culture, both Ahmad and Moe quickly found themselves answering to an increasing number of orders for tee shirts and tote bags from friends and family. It was the birth of The Workshop, born in Beirut but now based in Dubai.
