Lubnan ( لبنان‎‎ ) is the first collaboration between Polyeco Contemporary Art Initiative and Serapis. Serapis was commissioned to design a series of silk works inspired by Polyeco Group’s ongoing hazardous waste management project in northern Lebanon. The project takes place near Tripoli, in an open space next to the IPC oil refinery. Members of Serapis traveled on site and documented a large part of Polyeco Group’s management process, which resulted in the production of a limited collection of silk scarves.

ΣΕΡΑΠΙΣ is an international maritime corporation based in Greece, which constructs clothing and art among other items. All works of the company are limited edition series of pieces, numbered and signed. Polyeco Contemporary Art Initiative is a nonprofit organization which primarily aims at raising environmental awareness, promotes and facilitates the collaboration between scientists and visual artists through a unique art program inspired by the crucial issue of waste management.
