Riyadh’s bespoke community really has some hidden gems.
With a growing number of festivals and events, you can find a lot of small businesses selling gorgeous handmade goods popping up. It is becoming increasingly common for these shops to advertise their goods through snapchat and instagram. Buyers can text a whatsapp number to place an order. Sellers will often arrange to meet in person, or mail the goods through a courrier sevice like Saudi Post or Aramex. The prices vary depending on size and design.
I personally like to order handmade items to give as gifts. Several of my co-workers have children, and I always take gifts from Amiy Shop. They are handmade from local women, and they offer high quality items that can’t be bought just anywhere. Every experience I have had with Areej and Nouf, the owners, has been great!
