My friend and former hairdresser, Kathy, is visiting from New Mexico, and whenever she is here, Sadu House is always on her list of go-to places. No matter how many times I'm there, I always find it very inspiring.
The term "Al Sadu" refers to the traditional weaving process that depicts the nomadic and desert lifestyle of the Bedouin people through pattern, design and symmetry.
In order to support and safeguard this traditional art form, proceeds from weavings and other items that are sold in the newly renovated gift shop directly benefit local artisans.
The interior courtyard is used for lectures, workshops and bazaars.
And each room surrounding it is used to highlight different aspects of weaving.
The arts, quite simply, nourish the soul. They sustain, comfort, inspire. There is nothing like that exquisite moment when you first discover the beauty of connecting with others in celebration of larger ideals and shared wisdom.
Have a fabulous Friday!
