One of the names standing out in the Arabian Peninsula is Kuwait, the city of many marvels. The Arab Emirate made its mark in the world after the World War II, when the oil reserves were discovered. This desert country is visited by many as it offers solid sunshine throughout the year, but also has the beach to let you cool off.
One of the main cultural places to visit in Kuwait is the Sadu House, where it still embraces the traditional weaving methods of the Bedouins. In 1979 when a group of people decided that Bedouin weaving culture is dying and it needed saving, the Sadu House was created to preserve the rare art form. Therefore in 1980, the Sadu House came into being to preserve the weaving methods with dyed, spun and coloured wool. By 1984, it had about 300 Bedouin women registered and together they managed to produce about 70 items per week.
The uniqueness of the Bedouins weaving is that it made out of geometric designs woven with the wool that is dyed in different colours and spun. The patters also give out a reference to the desert as it was the main residing areas of the Bedouins. Other items made at the Sadu House are tents, ceramic objects, handmade pottery, and all forms of textiles. Several halls of the house display objects from buildings which used to serve as homes, mosques, and storage places for food, before Kuwait was modernised.
If these hand-woven items stimulate your interest, you may buy then from the Sadu House itself. In addition, the Sadu House also has an area that presents an enclosed playground for children. There is also Abu Adnan cafe, which allows you to enjoy the Bedouins culture just from sitting on their homely wooden benches. The designs will take you to back and forth between the desert and the ocean, and therefore the experience obtained at the Sadu House is very much unique.
To visit the cultural serenity of the Sadu House it is better to go at a time when you are not hasty and in a very relaxed frame of mind. If you are looking for any Kuwait hotels in the proximity of the Sadu House then you are in luck as Al-Jahra Copthorne Hotel & Resort is an ideal choice, giving discerning guests exemplarily accommodation options coupled with the finest of facilities.
