Egyptian Souk

When I  listen the word (Fekra) I remember of an industry that started thousand of years ago and was embraced by the people of Naqada.This skills  passed between generations comes from pharaonic times, where  dyed yarn of silk or cotton is made into various forms of fabrics, including “Women’s robe” Shall and men putting them on the shoulder as an ornament

700 kilometers from Cairo Governorate, Nakada Center in Qena Governorate,  most of the people of the village works in this industry, now they are suffering with bad work conditions and lack of orders due to the invasion  of the Chinese products that are much lower in quality and less expensive as well as the economic conditions experienced by the country, making a lot of families in this industry leaving the profession and putting in danger this Heritage product.
