The governorate of Sinai falls under several eco-zones covering both North and South Sinai. These are the Mountains and Wadis of South Sinai, Central and North Sinai, Mediterranean Marine Habitats, Mediterranean Wetlands, and Red Sea Littoral Habitats. It is important to note that the Sinai is one of Egypt’s coldest areas in light of its high altitudes and mountainous regions.
Sinai is home to a large number of unique and distinct crafts. These include embroidery, tasseling, beading, and the use of floor looms for wool weaving. The craftspeople in the Sinai create a wide range of products including pillows, bedcovers, and embroidered and beaded cloth products.
