The Egyptians were the first people to develop the art
technology of manufacturing glass and cutting it into beautiful
shapes and began doing this 5,000 years ago. Established in 1961
and located in Shobra, the Asfour Crystal Factory Showroom is the
largest crystal factory in Egypt and provides crystals to many
countries across the globe. Products range from jewellery, 3D laser
gifts, figurines and a selection of chandeliers and other light
fittings. The jewellery is not of the same standard as Swarovski
crystal. But some lovely pieces can be picked up at prices up to
60% cheaper than what you'll find at retail shops.
