When it comes to fashion for Arabic and

kerdasa. Kerdasa Embroidered dresses are not

kerdasa which is a small
town from the pyramids. I had gone 3 1/2 years ago and it took
forever to get out there. the roads were bad and we had to go thru
the city. now with the new ring road and some other new easy access
roads, we werethere in 20 minutes. alhumdulillah. we went to buy
some gifts for family and friends and some things for the bazaar. we
took with us an aunt who is great at bargaining and knowing the
value of things. she's awesome. and my mil is learning how to
bargain and mash'Allah she's getting great at it, i was surprised by
the other nite (will post that later). i bought a rug for our
apartment and i love it :-) it's awesome and it was $17.50. you
couldn't get this rug in the states for less than $50, i believe.
wool and handmade of course. the guys who owned the shop does many
exhibitions in the states for textiles and has some beautiful rugs
hanging in his shop. there was this one of a scene in aswan,
ooooooooohhhh mash'Allah. it was enormous and detailed, i had never
seen anything like that in my life. so detail, better than a
painting. itwas 20,000 L.E. or $3500 and it's worth it in my
opinion. so beautiful. then in another shop i got some camels. i
believe about 15 of them, as gifts and to sell at our bazaar in the
spring. not real, duh.
we had more time there but we plan to go back again before i leave.
the reason we go there is because the cost of things is much less
and we cut out all the middle men. I like it.
where you can buy the traditional galabia
and a belly dancers outfit at a reasonable price .
