Once upon a time in Cairo, Makram Khalil started a family business specialized in furniture manufacturing. A decade later, the new generation, Cherif and Ramy Makram, dreamed of taking the business further and decided of expanding through the creation of a new brand, & Cairo.
As its name indicates, & Cairo is fresh and crisp with inspiration from vintage and retro pieces that are significant to Cairo’s culture and character. Understanding the rich background of the city, & Cairo wants to make sure that its inspirations and, as a result, products capture the city’s essence exclusively.
While the city may be thousands of years old, the Makram brothers are offering a new style; it’s the “Makramish Style”. With a fresh outlook on products, where substance triumphs over style, without forgetting the importance of creating products that are useful and permit the user to connect on an emotional level.
The brand mainly focuses on wood but also incorporates other materials that require a passion for craftsmanship. It presents a family business, managed by different generations that share the same passion for furniture making.
