The Ramses Wissa Wassaf complex is serving an important function in Cairo. Founded by Wissa Wasaaf and currently operated by his daughter Suzanne, it is a place you should visit while in Cairo. People learn a trade and are paid fairly. The creativity is amazing.

Beautiful original tapestries, all the artists working together go back several generations, so talented. Unique one of a kind art work. And nobody, unlike other places in Egypt ask for money or commissions.
