:: Made in Egypt: Traditional Crafts of Cairo ::

Photographer's Note: There are a few more artisans located in medieval Cairo, but during this project's timeframe their workshops were closed either because of the lack of supplies or their workshops were undergoing restorations conducted by the ministry of culture as part of the Open Air Museum project currently underway in that area.
