Making a Kartush- Egyptian Factory

I and my daughter were in Egypt for about a month, documenting our trip. In Luxor we had the most wonderful horse carriage driver who's father ran the nearby jewelry store. After we each purchased a Kartush with our name on it, and spending much time in the store conversing, the manager invited us to photograph and film the making of a Kartush at the store's factory. A little place down a small street, housed in the old mud brick buildings of Egypt. It was amazing, beautiful, and such wonderful people. We will always cherish our friends in Luxor, and all the places of Egypt we visited.
