O DE ROSE
An eclectic concept store, where all the items are handmade by mostly local or middle eastern artisans, and a style is a kind of modern arabic. Local art is displayed throughout the boutique, and the smell of rose incense welcomes the visitors. Absolutely worth a visit!
O de Rose, 999 Al Wasl Road
Umm Suqueim 2, Dubai
Handcrafted furniture and artisanal decoration objects, in a balinese-coastal style. I remember when I first went there, just behind the Garden Center, and now they have a beautiful space at the Courtyard, with many inspiring pieces.
From furniture to baskets, vintage drums, rattan trays and a nice selection of Fiona Walker felt animal heads and natural fibre rugs from Armadillo&co you’ll surely find something for your home.

With a big window facing one of the main streets of Satwa, Mohammed from Al Madaen Carpet Trading will show you some beautiful rugs (the nice ones are a bit hidden I have to admit) and I am sure if you enter this place you will surely go home with a gorgeous piece. From moroccan Beni ourain, to afghan kilims and iranian cotton rugs, you have just to go there and spot what you are looking for.
