Traditional Emirati handicrafts include khoos (palm fronds weaving), saddoo (wool weaving), telli (embroidery), metal works, pottery, traditional jewellery, leather items and artifacts made from wood.

The purpose behind holding this special exhibition is to preserving Abu Dhabi's authentic culture, tradition and heritage, that is slowly dying.
