Sadu House is the home of the Al Sadu Weaving Cooperative Society, started in 1978 to preserve, document and promote the textile heritage of the Kuwaiti Bedouin.
When visiting Sadu House you will walk through the house looking at different types of weaved items, all with comprehensive and comprehensible explanations. You can also watch a (rather interesting) documentary that explains the different techniques and tells about the history and the culture of the Kuwaiti Bedouin and the role weaving had in their everyday lives.
As Sadu House is a cooperation that helps preserve, you can watch the women at work on their looms, teaching new students the 'tricks of the trade'.
Last but not least, Sadu House sells all the weavings made by the women of the cooperation in their shop. The proceeds of the sales keep the cooperation operable. Prices vary (based on the quality of the work) between approx 15 and 250 KD.
Sadu House is open from Saturday to Thursday from:
8:00am - 1:00pm
4:00pm - 8:00pm
Sadu House is next to the National Museum, so it is practical to combine visits to those two attractions.
In my opinion, Sadu House is one of the top attractions of Kuwait City, especially for people that are interested in history, culture and / or textiles.
