RIVER JORDAN: Best in Amman
It says "The Jordan River Foundation (JRF), established in 1995 and Chaired by Her Majesty Queen Rania Al-Abdullah, is a non-profit Jordanian non-governmental organization (NGO).Our vision is to empower society, especially women and children, and in turn, improve the quality of life to secure a better future for all Jordanians" at their website www.jordanriver.joI visited their shop in Al Rainbow Street. The building is a former consulate and it's a nice garden. Also they have shops in different places in Amman such as Free shop.
They sell many hand made objects made by Jordanian women. All traditional and worth to buy. Cushions, dolls, runners, wooden boxes, shawls, rugs, wall hangings etc. The wall hangings I liked most. These are very detailed. Some of the wall hangins are hand embroidered, some felt patch work. Also dolls are good gifts for children.
