The Story of Fowwa: Past and Present
Our story begins in Fowwa, a small village that sits on the western banks of the Nile Delta. Just a few decades ago, Fowwa used to be a hub for kilim weaving and home to thousands of workshops, however with a declining tourism industry and the fast spread of cheaper machine made rugs, Fowwa’s main industry began to fade.
