This black Egyptian cotton fringe shawl is hand-woven in the heart of el-Arish, the capital of North Sinai by talented Egyptian craftswomen. Sinai has a rich cultural heritage that continues to be an integral part of Egypt’s identity. The local women create these beautiful shawls using the handloom weaving craft, influenced by the traditional Sinai tribal culture. This type of craft-making was inherited from the Pharaohs and lives on today.
This rectangular handwoven tribal-print shawl is made from 100% handpicked Egyptian cotton. It has lovely fringes extending at its ends. The shawl is lined with embroidery fashioned in small precise cross-stitching. This lovely hand-woven patterned shawl comes in two different sizes 80cm*2m (31.5 *78.5 inches) & 60cm*2m (23.5 *78. inches).
It can be worn as a shawl, wrap, cover-up, or even an oriental-style hip wrap for dancing. It’s not just limited to clothing. It can also serve as a lovely piece of decor, adding a warm, ethnic accent to any space. This shawl looks great over a table or chair, or even draped across a wall, showcasing the talent of local Egyptian craftswomen.
Handle with care:
Wash in cold water, whether using a washing machine or washing by hand. Give garments a gentle stretch when they come out of the wash to get them back into shape. Always air dry: dry clothes flat and out of the sun if possible.
