I spent a good 45 minutes browsing, chatting and shopping with the owner Linda whose knowledge of all the products on sale was just wonderful. I filled a spare case with items and I only wish I'd had space for more. The brass lamps are just beautiful and for me the soft cotton towels/throws are real quality at great value.... More

The art of bargaining is alive and well in Egypt but if you really don't like that atmosphere, Habiba's is a true delight. Linda has lived there for 17 years and carries locally made products. Very nice selection of hundreds of things. I was grateful to get 90% of my shopping done in this environment. I loved knowing I might... More

When you're tired of haggling your way through every purchase, with every seller making up stories about every item, visit Habiba. The shop is filled with beautiful items made by hand from quality materials. The fixed prices are excellent. The lovely Australian owner works with local craftswomen to help them acquire skills and gain some independence, and trades fairly with... More

Stayed in Luxor for 4 weeks and visited this store multiple times. Everything inside is gorgeous - unique scarves (I bought so many!), hand painted tiles, jewelry, and all kinds of other amazing things.

The Australian owner was very sweet and took her time to chit chat with my daughter and myself. You can see she is dedicated to develop true local craftsmanship. Would recommend her Hammam towels and soaps. Very near the Luxor Temple which makes it easy to visit.

This store had one the best selection of crafts and clothing in Egypt. Scarves, weavings, glassware - you name it. Much better offerings than the nearby fair trade store or the Caravanserai on the West Bank. And the owner, Linda, is a wealth of information about the location and creation of the items in the store.
