Egyptian weaving is a passion of mine. Our weavers have been taught the skills of weaving by their mothers and grandmothers and, using traditional wooden looms, incorporate centuries old patterns into our scarves (ferkas), wraps, throws and rugs.

Ferkas are traditional scarves or shawls woven by hand in Upper Egypt that were originally exported from Egypt to Sudan and the heart of Africa through long established caravan trade routes.

All purchases help fund better education for women and children in a rural part of Upper Egypt, as well as helping to improve living standards and fund better social benefits.
