Petra Pottery Association

For visitors who have fallen in love with Petra, here is an opportunity to take home more than just a souvenir – but a meaningful work of art.

Only a 20 minute drive away from Mövenpick Resort Petra, authentic Nabatean pottery is made in exactly the same way as it was back in 50 AD. The elegant works are characterised by mellow red, brown and pink clay, as well as delicate leaf and floral designs. 

By reviving this ancient craft, the Taybeh Village Women’s Society enjoys an income and the fulfilment of using their creativity.

Travel: 20 minute drive from the Mövenpick Resort Petra.

Opening hours: Sunday to Thursday from 8.00 am to 2.00 pm.

In the area: Petra, Dana Nature Reserve and Wadi Rum.
