Our Story

Established in 1989 in Amman, Jordan, AlBurgan Handicrafts is a family-run business renowned for crafting top-quality artisanal products that seamlessly merge traditional Jordanian and Palestinian folklore with modern sophistication. Our expertise in embroidery and sewing extends to a contemporary, stylish collection, reflecting a harmonious balance of heritage and trend.

Lina Lama Burgan started AlBurgan Handicrafts, a unique venture in a one room workshop employing and training three ladies, two of whom with hearing disabilities, working on one sewing machine. The first product was a handmade slipper in traditional fabrics that proved to be very popular.


Since then, AlBurgan Handicrafts has become one of the leading crafts businesses in Jordan.

Our hand embroideries are skilfully crafted by local women, particularly Palestinian refugees, in the comfort of their homes.


Through this collaboration, AlBurgan Handicrafts not only highlights exquisite craftsmanship but also supports and empowers these resilient women, contributing to their livelihoods and community well-being.


Our Showroom is located in a rustic two-storey house in the middle of old Amman. A good range of our products can also be found at all five star hotel gift shops throughout Jordan and prominent tourist attraction shops.
