Since its inception in 2002, the Bisat Al Reeh Ramadan fair in Jeddah has grown to become one of the most highly anticipated charity exhibitions in Saudi Arabia—and the region. With a name that translates to “magic carpet,” the six-day expo will run until June 17th at the Jeddah International Exhibition & Convention Center. Organized by The National Home Health Care Foundation—founded by HRH Princess Hessa bint Trad Al-Shaalan, wife of the late King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz—the charity festival is known for its buzzing vibe, festive atmosphere, and wide selection of local and regional brands. Funds collected through sponsorships, vendor booth sales, and ticket purchases go towards benefiting a number of programs in the Kingdom that assist home-based medical care.

This year, expect to discover an array of ready-to-wear brands, kaftan and abaya labels, accessories, and perfumes on display. At the event, you’ll find Saudi designer Nora Al Shaikh behind her eponymous, ready-to-wear brand; Kuwaiti label Hamsa presenting covetable embroidered kaftans; Saudi-based Haifa AlIbrahim’s streamlined silhouettes; accessories label Sarah’s Bag; and sparkling gemstone pieces from Jade Jewellery and Vos Diamants. Meanwhile, you can also get your hands on the latest collections from Arwa Al Banawi, Madiyah Al Sharqi, Dima Ayad, and Dina Khalifé at the Faux Consultancy pop-up. While you’re there, be sure to make a stop at Janan Studio where you can personalize your handbags with custom, hand-painted designs on the spot.
