We consider it our duty to redress the stereotypes. Living in a region steeped in well-worn cliches, Brownbook takes on the task of reintroducing the Middle East to itself. Seeking out people, places and narratives from Tehran to Casablanca we look at the real style of life and tell stories that would otherwise remain unheard. Launched in 2006 in Dubai, Brownbook has successfully remained independent and is today one of the most widely read magazines in the Middle East and North Africa. We publish six times a year. With extensive coverage of lifestyle, design, architecture and travel we are an essential guide to the region.
In this section, we aim to introduce the Middle East to itself again, and meet people with businesses, big ideas, friendly faces and a plan for the future.
