Clothing Embellishments


Hindawiya is an area of Old Jeddah where you can find the sewing and crafts souks. One can find an abundance of beads, sequins, trims, buttons, and other types of embellishments for clothing. Women often have their fancy dresses custom made, so they have an exquisite one-of-a-kind gown instead of buying off the rack. Store after store offer an array of colors, styles, and sizes of these accessories and it’s a big business here.
