A young Saudi in the south of the kingdom has recreated the timeless craft of hand-carving wooden sticks with a new look that suits modern tastes, which has led to increased demand for it by pilgrims and online customers from all over the world.
Walking canes have long been associated with the elderly and the sick, and usually include simple designs that focus more on function rather than appearance.
This association prompted Adel Al-Shehri to give the concept new life by bringing back an old craft and turning sticks into famous statement pieces used by Saudis.
Through his work, he can convey the cultural and historical essence of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by engraving cultural designs on Sidr wood.
