Saied Hussain has been hand making tiles out of cement for over 50 years. He says he’s one of the last still doing this work in Egypt - most other workshops couldn't withstand competition from marble and ceramic tiles. We went to Cairo to see how his business is still standing.

Saied does not have a website. He sells his tiles locally in Cairo.

I hate when these internet news people show us struggling artists who have endangered crafts of art and then don’t give us any way to support them. They do say he only sells locally in the description, but why not create a website for him and help him sell even more? Or even create a go fund me so he can afford more resources?

It would be helpful if Business Insider provides the artist shop address or his contact information(If He is agree) for the future tourists, or an entrepreneur who can offer him a fair agreement to increase his sales, and hire more people who'll learn this ancient technique, without losing its artisanal essence. From my point of view, his art deserves to be share with the rest of the world. Personally, I know business might be cold but there's always the opportunity to find the right balance between art, sustainability, passion, humanity and a way of living of this, to keep alive his knowledge.

🙏 I pray Saed lives a very long time and enough young people learn from him to carry on the beautiful ancient craft of handmade tiles into the next century. I am sure these tiles are superior to ceramic, which I have in my home now, and much more beautiful😍
