Heritage and Crafts

The Sultanate of Oman places significant importance on preserving its heritage and traditional crafts. Omani artisans continue to practice traditional crafts that have been passed down through generations, while also adding modern touches to them. Artisans continue to create unique and diverse products, such as intricately designed silver jewelry, pottery, ceramics, and the famous Omani Khanjar (traditional dagger). They showcase their creativity in their crafts and products, offering them in the best possible way. These products can be purchased from lively markets spread across the country. Building traditional Omani ships, known as “dhows” or sailboats, in the city of Sur is one of the crafts that is still practiced to this day. Visitors often marvel at the exceptional skill displayed by these shipbuilders. They are impressed by the tremendous effort put into constructing every part of these ships.
