Come up with an idea - and local masters realize it in the form of a drawing of sand, brought from all seven Arab emirates.
How to buy Seven Sands of the Emirates in Dubai
In fact, it is not necessary to visit each emirate in order to bring something interesting from them.

"7 sands" is a popular Arabic souvenir, which can be called the symbol of Dubai and the UAE as a whole. They use sands taken from each emirate to create it. The masters fill a glass flask with layers of sands so that patterns or drawings appear inside.

Each colour corresponds to a certain emirate: white - Ras al-Khaimah, blue - Umm al-Quwain, black - Fujairah, brown - Sharjah, red — Dubai, orange - Abu Dhabi, beige - Ajman.

How to do?

1. "7 sand" can be purchased in many souvenir shops. For example, you can find them in large numbers in Dubai Mall. You can easily get here by public transport from anywhere in the city. Take the metro and go to the Burj Khalifa / Dubai Mall.

2. Choose a flask with the drawing you like. The ratio of sand of different colors in them differs depending on the pattern. The most common variant is the image of the desert, palms and camels. Also, there are small pictures, in the creation of which they use the same technique.
