Turath* aims to protect Egypt’s heritage through a variety of different handicrafts, while improving living conditions of workers, enhancing the quality of handmade products. With this in mind, TURATH focuses on the weavers of Naqada, a small village in Upper Egypt just north of Luxor. The looms used in Naqada today are traditional ones that have been handed down through generations since Pharaonic times.

*Turath is the Arabic word for heritage
