Al Naqdah

Women in the past used to dress for social occasions in

clothes embroidered with real silver thread known as

“Naqdah”. These are silver embroideries prepared with a

special needle.

Nowdays, the ladies in the workshop do Naqdah

work on modern products like napkins, table and bed covers

as weel as gift bags among other things. This has helped in

preserving and keeping alive he beautiful craft of Naqdah

embroidery.
