Saied Hussain has been hand making tiles out of cement for over 50 years. He says he’s one of the last still doing this work in Egypt - most other workshops couldn't withstand competition from marble and ceramic tiles. We went to Cairo to see how his business is still standing.

Saied does not have a website. He sells his tiles locally in Cairo.

🙏 I pray Saed lives a very long time and enough young people learn from him to carry on the beautiful ancient craft of handmade tiles into the next century. I am sure these tiles are superior to ceramic, which I have in my home now, and much more beautiful😍

Your right he works slowly, painfully slowly, this explains how poverty thrived in the past, stubborn old men refusing to change.

150 tiles (app 10m²) for 31€ is a joke! Buying in Europe you may find the easy patterns for ~40€/m². Another example how "modern" trade is killing craftmenship.

You know, I wish people would actually band together to preserve and promote craft/artistry like this. I want to believe I'm not nearly alone in the desire to purchase things made by master craftsmen instead of cheap, Chinese mass produced crap from Home Depot and Lowe's. But I can never seem to FIND people who do this anywhere near me. I understand Etsy was launched as a way for craftspeople to promote their work, but I never see anything like this on there.

Nice tiles and nice price(why so low? He would still sell at 4 times the price), but I don't want my home to look like it was made in the 60's

We have more important problems and things to address than skills dying out. By definition if it dies out people don't need it. We need to worry about crime, life quality, and economic equality.
