Damascene Clogs

Wooden clogs were once very popular among Damascenes. Today, they are only used in public baths.

The clogs were made from walnut and willow trees that had existed abundantly along River Barada.

Referred to in Arabic as “Qibqab”, the clogs were principally made and sold in Souq Al-Qabaqbiya in Damascus Old City.

A beautiful Mother of Pearl inlay specimen of Damascene clogs used in traditional weddings is on display at Al-Azem Palace.
