Women’s Handicraft Centre information
This government-run centre showcases textile weaving, embroidery, basket-making, silver-thread needlework and other time-honoured crafts traditional to the region. Shoes should be removed before entering the various workshops and permission sought for photographs. All items are for sale in the on-site shop. There is a henna bar for women; this temporary souvenir lasts about a week.
The centre is behind the main building of the General Women's Union (ask the guard for directions), at the south end of Al Karamah St.
