connecting talented saudi artisans to market
Turquoise Mountain and the Saudi Handicrafts Programme at the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage, have embarked on an exciting collaboration to develop and support crafts markets and artisans from Saudi Arabia.
The partnership is taking artisans directly to markets through a series of commercial opportunities. It builds a sustainable artisan sector, with a product portfolio that reflects high quality, authentic design, with a unique appeal to clients across the Middle East region.
Female artisans and the wider artisanal sector in Saudi Arabia have huge potential, both in terms of providing independence through livelihoods, but also in terms of recognising the rich cultural legacy of the Arabian Peninsula.
Working with the Saudi Handicrafts Programme at the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage, Turquoise Mountain unlocks this potential, providing training to artisans and connecting them directly with real commercial opportunity.
Turquoise Mountain artisans produce handmade, beautiful craftwork which is steeped in local design traditions set in a contemporary context.
