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.

What a beautiful profession. To bad he is the only one left doing this. As a dental technician understand his passion for color and detail. I would like to follow him arround for a week or so.

31 US dollar ? if it's made in japan it would be $ 310.000 and of course it takes 100 years to master.

I need these in my home. The blue and green colors he made were positively stunning and I despise ceramic tile. It is always ugly patterns and colors. What he makes are beautiful masterpieces.

🙏 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😍
