For over three years we follow a community of artisans whose craft has remained largely unchanged since Pharaonic times. They try to make sense of Egypt’s recent history, as their hands stitch incredibly detailed designs. Contrasts exist not only in the scenes where the artworks clash with the dirt and grime of the street, but also in the social differences, wealth and political views.
