This event celebrates the achievements of the UNESCO project “Empowering Rural Women in the Jordan Valley” funded by Drosos Foundation. “The Colours of Jordan” launches “Safi Crafts” as the ecofriendly brand of the Ghor el Safi Women’s Association in the Jordan Valley.
Since 1999, the women of Ghor el Safi have produced hand dyed textiles using the colourful soil and natural dye plants of Jordan. During the past two years they have achieved even more extraordinary results, including the successful revival of the ancient indigo industry to obtain a natural blue colour.

The event will showcase “Safi Crafts” products and celebrate the heritage of Jordan and the Southern Jordan Valley.
