  • The quality is excellent. Prices are very good for value. Worth paying what they say. This is good art which also helps artists. Not everything has to be cheap and bargaining.  more »

  • Excellent souvenir to take home where we can get a few Papyrus gift? Put this question to our city tour guide took us to this site. The staff is friendly and there is no pressure to buy. Welcome is a presentation of the traditional process to make papyrus, with which any of us could do it at home... There we saw that a few "Papyrus" that we had bought on the street, were not really Papyri but imitations. Then we toured the beautiful pictures on Papyrus, which have a huge advantage over false papyrus. The original can be screwed like a tube and they can be transported in suitcases with ease. If it is true that they are a little more expensive that those who purchased on the street, but there is no point of comparison, this site is worth visiting. If you want to can make you a papyrus in personalised with your name in hieroglyphs and their zodiac sign, the tree of life, or many other symbols that fill the heart and face of smiles. Wait to dry ink before passing it to their children, it can leverage to teach them to be careful about an item before placing it in its protective tube. After being in it, provided that it does not get wet, everything will be fine. It is only a small place, but it is ideal to carry these memories only special people not waiting at home. Includes certificate of authenticity which adds value. The staff is friendly and the place is clean and pleasant. We weren't going to buy only one only, but not clear we could contain us and we ended up taking several for other family members. If you travel with children not the let alone, it can wreak havoc quickly. You can enter by car from baby or stroller.
