Where to buy beautifully crafted artisanal textiles in Abu Dhabi.

Our home is a reflection of our personal style. We take great pride is carefully picking the contents of our abode-every piece of furniture and accessory must match our taste.

Usually we struggle to find home accessories in Abu Dhabi-ones that are affordably priced and unique in style. Recently we stumbled upon Shenouk, a home accessories business that sources unique and inspired textiles from Jaipur, the heart of block printing design in India.

The collection is carefully curated and will add a distinct style to your home while simultaneously preserving a centuries-old artisanal craft. The store offers an eclectic range of elegant table lines, bedding, soft furnishings and kantha blankets.

The table linens are available in delicate paisleys to bold chevron and various sizes.

The bedding pairs fine indian cotton with soothing patterns tand includes 

Dohars which are 3-ply sheets utilizing über soft cotton—heavier than a sheet but lighter than a traditional cover, they are extremely versatile.  Perfect on their own in the warm Gulf climate or used in conjunction with quilts and duvets for added warmth. The collection includes quilted bedcovers, dohars, traditional sheets and cushion covers.

There is a line of cushions, light upholstery, and window treatments are for the bedroom or sitting room, indoor or outdoor and available in a beautiful array of block print designed cushions.

Our personal favourite are the kantha blankets that are ideal to throw on a sofa or at the foot of a bed. These blankets are traditionally created using vintage saris which are stitched together in multiple layers using fine hand stitching (called “kantha” stitching). Each of these blankets is absolutely unique in design, stitching pattern, softness and thickness.
