A world of colours, charm & culture
We're passionate about selecting the best Egyptian handicrafts to sell on our website and in our stores, making it simple for you to find inspired, original, colorful, stylish or unique things. We don’t sell everything; we sell only items we like. We choose craftsmen who offer great design and the best quality products. We know where do these items come from and we went to meet these people in their workshops or homes.
We won’t show you just anything, we want to inspire you. Or even surprise you. Just like you, we’re not interested in being the same as everyone else, that’s why Oum El Dounia is unique.
Everything you buy from our website comes directly from one of the craftsmen, community centers, women associations, artists, designers … who make-up our collection exclusive.
About books, all titles were carefully selected, depending on what we would love to read, offering an interesting variety about the Arab world. As in a bookshop, take the time to read the back cover (summaries that we wanted as detailed as possible), notices on authors who often take you to their web page and also read or listen to what the media says about these books. We hope you to take pleasure in choosing the books you are going to order, just as you would in a bookshop. The suggestions of books you might like represent the advice of a bookseller and not the automatic choice of software that analyzes keywords.
We love what we do and we are happy to share it with you.
