It is hard to imagine Hamra Street as a quiet place, lined with poplar trees and home to only two shops. Amir started its intriguing career as one of those two shops, founded in 1953 and still going strong. Now, after more than half a century, Amir continues to reinvent itself to suit its customers' ever changing tastes and demands. Now in the heart of a bustling and ever expanding high street, the shop caters to the needs of local and international customers. You will discover a veritable Ali Baba's cavern, a Pandora's box of delights and a timeless array of tastefully selected oriental goods. Here, you will find the gift that will please both eye and pocket; hand crafted artisan items, oriental dresses, shawls, exquisite table cloths and much more.
