Traditional Egyptian Embroidery, Handmade with Love in Egypt
Mother’s Day is a very special day for us here at Nevin Altmann. Part of the reason is that we are a mother/daughter team.
My mother, Nevin, started this business 30 years ago because of her passion for traditional Egyptian embroidery. She realized that the tradition of craftsmanship was being lost and forgotten. She joined up with women from Siwa first, helping them become independent wage earners. Now, there is a network of women from all over the country making traditional regional embroidery that is then incorporated into contemporary women’s accessories.
Nine years ago, after finishing my university studies, I wanted to become involved in this family business. In 2011, I opened a store selling my mother’s handmade products and branded the store under her name. We have been growing together since then. My mother is the designer and I am the entrepreneur.
As a mother/daughter team, part of our mission is to empower Egyptian women to be independent and able to support their families. So, we know the importance of this holiday and we want to help you show your appreciation for the awesome women in your life.
Remember that each of our unique pieces is hand embroidered and one of a kind. You can show your mom how unique you think she is with one of these 10 gift ideas.
Get her a gift card and bring her to one of our stores on Mother’s Day! Let her choose for herself and get styling advice from us in person from our expert staff.
You can also call us, contact us on Instagram, Facebook, or Whatsapp if you need any help.
