The Artisans Of Al-Darb Al-Ahmar

The Artisans Of Al-Darb Al-Ahmar: An exhibition that celebrates the people, culture and activity that takes place in this historic district of Cairo, that is home to 1,000 artisan workshops and 25 historical Islamic monuments. Darb Al-Ahmar, a maze of narrow and windy alleyways, connects visitors with a past and a way of life that can be found in very few places left in the world today. A huge array of crafts are made there from brass lanterns, to tents, glassware, and furniture inlaid with mother of pearl using designs that are unique to Egypt, Cairo and the district.
