Ammon News - AMMONNEWS - Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah, on Tuesday evening, launched the 22nd edition of the Jordan River Foundation’s (JRF) annual handicrafts exhibition, titled "Vintage Dreams."

Hosted at the JRF showroom in Amman, the exhibition showcases the Foundation’s latest collections of traditional and contemporary handicrafts. All items on display were created by women from local communities, under JRF’s projects, Bani Hamidah Designs, Jordan River Designs, and Wadi Rayan Designs.

Drawing inspiration from olive trees, pomegranates, and urban and Bedouin symbolism, this year’s exhibition reflects local traditions across a selection of home furnishings, special gift items, and fashion accessories.

Her Majesty toured the exhibition in the company of JRF Director General Enaam Barrishi, as well as members of the JRF Board of Trustees and friends and supporters of the Foundation.

JRF projects have empowered more than 2,500 beneficiaries to date, providing local women with technical and entrepreneurial training to help them provide for their families.

This year’s exhibition, which is being held with the support of Kathraba for Investments, is currently on display at the Foundation’s showroom in Jabal Amman’s Rainbow Street.
