Fair Trade Egypt
Located in the very upscale Zamalek area, this attractive shop stocks a wide range of Egyptian arts and crafts. Bedspreads, Bedouin embroidery, tablecloths, handmade kilims and clothing are just a few of the tempting items on offer. The goods are original and generally of very high quality, making it an ideal place to shop for gifts and souvenirs.
What I like most about this place is that it fairly markets goods for some of the most marginalised and poorest producers throughout Egypt.
However, this is not just a 'feel-good' shopping experience but also enjoyable, as the selection of crafts on sale is just stunning and very diverse. They include fabrics, both traditional and innovative, pottery, woodwork, baskets, jewellery, rugs, carpets, embroideries,cards and paperwork.
The staf are pleasant, informed and informative and never 'breathe down your neck', as frequently encountered when shopping in Egypt. The fixed prices are fair to you and to the producers.
