Crafts in Jordan
Jordan is known for its handicrafts, including rug making, carpet weaving, baskets, pottery, ceramics, and embroidery. The country’s traditional handicrafts have been passed from generation to generation, from times when most Jordanians made things themselves to meet their own domestic needs. Islamic and cultural diversions have affected Jordanian crafts, especially the decoration of pottery and ceramics. Crafts produced on a smaller scale include decorated sand bottles, sculptures, and handcrafted silver jewellery.
The non-profit, non-governmental Jordan River Foundation, which was established in 1995 and is now headed by Queen Rania, has been improving the quality of life for many Jordanian women and their families in rural areas, by encouraging handicraft production and undertaking other projects to empower youth and women.
