Dubai Police Sell Goods Handcrafted by Prisoners

You Can Now Shop Online For Goods Handcrafted by Dubai Prisoners

Dubai has launched a number of new initiatives lately. In fact, just yesterday, The Al Jalila Cultural Centre for Children announced a new program that will offer arts workshops to orphans and underprivileged children in the UAE.

Now, just a day later, Dubai Police have launched an online store selling handmade goods--and they're all made by people serving time in Emirati prisons.

The products, which are beautifully hand-crafted by the UAE's inmates, range from a detailed replica of a ship (100 AED) to a golden decorate box (2500 AED) to a copper chair (1000 AED), and are available on sale on the Dubai Police website.

If you'd rather see the handiwork yourself before purchasing, you can visit the main entry of the General Department of Punitive and Correctional Institutions in Aweer between 7:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. seven days a week.

We've got to hand it to the UAE's prisoners-- they're pretty crafty! Check out the entire collection here before heading to Aweer to shop some home goods with a cause.
