Take a handmade item from Erbil

12 June of 2014 by

You might be visiting Erbil for tourism, work, or event, we recommend you to take a ride to downtown around the Citadel and look for different items from different shops right on the street of the Citadel, that are all handmade by Erbilians, you can find a nice purse, bag, rag, or even a hat that reminds you of Erbil and Kurdistan.

Don’t be surprised if some of those items are a little bit expensive, remember that some of them are made 50 or 100 years ago, so they are worth it.

Some samples of items you might find interesting.
