For those with an interest in crafts, Jordan is a great place to go shopping. Items range from kilims, mosaics, painted ostrich eggs, embroidered cloth, silver jewellery and sand bottles to homemade soaps, jams and herbal infusions. Many of the traditional artefacts on sale are 'added-value crafts', produced by women in small community-based cooperatives for whom even a small sale can make a big difference.
