From the resource-scarce lands of the Arabian Peninsula, from Bedouin ingenuity emerged the craft of Al-Sadu, the traditional technique of weaving the hair of camels and the wool of goats and sheep into fabric for blankets, carpets, pillows, tents and the decoration of camel saddles and belts.
Al-Sadu holds a place of particular honour in Emirati society, recognised for its essential role in Bedouin life and as a tangible example of adaptation and creativity. It also represents one of the most valuable economic contributions that women made to their society. Al-Sadu also played a central role in the social lives of traditional Emirati women.
