Al Sadu Society is dedicated to preserving, documenting and promoting the rich and diverse textile heritage of the Kuwaiti Bedouin, from the nomadic weaving of the desert through to the urban weaving of the town. We celebrate the values of productivity and creativity of the nation’s past generation, weaving together a cultural identity for both present and future generations.
Begun in 1978, as a private initiative, by a group of concerned Kuwaitis who wished to preserve a fast disappearing, yet intrinsic, cultural identity, the Al Sadu Project was founded.
In 1991, soon after the liberation of Kuwait, the Sadu Project was transformed into Al Sadu Weaving Co-operative Society. This is a venture owned and run by the weavers and artisans themselves, with all profits going to these, the shareholders. The Society is managed by members of a board of shareholders and an advisory committee headed by the Patron, honorary president Sheikha Altaf Al-Sabah.
