  • Excellent store with some museum quality pieces. I only bought some Dead Sea bath salt, but the price was still just a fraction of what the tourist-targeted shops charge. Very friendly staff and owner. Been in business since 1974 for good reason.
  • Very nice place where you can find authentic jordanian things
  • Very nice place to visit. The shop owner is very helpful. Shop has collect many unique and antique Jordanian pieces.
  • For as long as I can remember I have been a customer at JCC. Their work and craftsmanship is of highest quality. It is an inspiration to see that they hold tradition and culture in the highest sense while introducing modern design. The use of color is refreshing and beautiful. I never leave this place empty handed. Not to forget that it is a perfect place to buy gifts of cultural and elegant designs.
  • Jordan Crafts Center is more than just a lovely store. In addition to finding the full range of Jordanian crafts including antique fabrics, furniture, ceramics, framed curios, cushions, scarves and clothing, the store's artisan, Ahmed, acts as a guide explaining the origin, history and meaning of the many fabulous treasures for sale within. Shopping at the Center has been a pleasure and deeply educational.
