Genuine, tasteful, affordable and memorable handcraft and gifts
Aug. 2020
Your masks are little treasures of class and style. Perfect gifts and easy to wash. I was getting a bit fed up with wearing either the fibre or filter masks, but these simple, subtle, interesting and different ones, I love. I am excited to share my stash with loved ones. Thank you Jordan Craft, Ahmad and Crew, you always come up trumps. Your lovely way, reasonable rates and proactive manner are hugely appreciated. Glad the ladies in Ajloun are making such fine pieces and looking forward to more masks, bags, pouches, pashminas and all things divine to give and some to keep.

Authentic and Ethically-Made Handicrafts!
Nov. 2019
The Jordan Craft Center displays and sells authentic, local handicrafts from the past and present. If you are lucky, designer Ahmad will offer you a cup of tea and tell you more about the fascinating history of textiles in the region. You will peruse antique, hand-embroidered dresses, mosaics evocative of Madaba, and tasteful jewelry as you walk from room to room. And best of all, you can feel secure in your purchase knowing that you are supporting individual women in Jordan as well as the cultural heritage of the whole community!

A Gem Not To Be Missed!
Sep. 2019 • Friends
After reading the trip advisor reviews below my parents and I thought we would go check it out. We are so glad we did!
What a wonderful shop!

After walking around town earlier that day we were exhausted by the push to buy at the tourist shops that all had the same things that were not at all handmade.

The craft center was a breath of fresh air! When we arrived we were greeted by a beautiful garden with so many curious antiques tastefully placed here and there. Inside is this beautiful home that has been turned into a classy boutique. We got lost in the rooms with beautiful, high quality, truly handmade merchandise ranging from antiques to new. Here you will find unique gifts such as glassware, ceramics, wooden boxes, soaps, trinkets, inlaid furniture, mirrors, pillows, jewelry, antique jewelry, scarfs, handmade blouses, dresses and Knick knacks of all sorts.

The real gem here are the various textiles. Meeting the owner Achmed and his colleague was such a treat! They are so kind and hospitable and are there to help you with whatever you may be looking for. They are not pushy and give you space to explore around this magical house. All 2 floors of beautiful things!

Back to the textiles though.. you are in for a treat if you like unique, one of a kind scarfs and appreciate fine works of art. Achmed truly has a talent for preserving ancient stories and designs on silk. His works are beautiful masterpieces ranging from geometric to organic patterns with a romantic touch. Meeting him and seeing the passion in his creations is something I will hold dear in my fond memories of our travel to Jordan.

Thank you Jordan Craft Center for sharing your hospitality and passion with us!

A true celebration of culture and heritage
Sep. 2019
This beautiful shop could also be called a museum. Displaying only the finest handmade crafts, including everything from embroidery to mosaics from across Jordan and Palestine. Every single piece tells a story of heritage, tradition and beauty.

Wonderful selection of curated crafts
Sep. 2019 • Family
The Jordan Crafts Center is a must-visit place for those visiting Jordan’s capital. Not only for first time visitors, but for those paying a return visit to one of the best kept centers for local artists. Various displays are continually curated with items of great taste. Ahmad, who manages the center, will take the time to talk to you about each artisan’s crafts, techniques, and history, as well as the ethics of artisan community support. The staff members are welcoming and friendly, and prices are in line with those at retail stores, but what makes their selection so wonderful is it’s authenticity and value.
