What do you get in Etihad’s amenity kits?

Etihad

There’s an interesting story behind Etihad’s limited-edition kits. The airline worked with Sougha, a social enterprise initiative that’s preserving the Emirati heritage and promoting local artisans, to produce their travel kits.

The kits feature patterns of Sadou, an ancient, Abu Dhabi weaving craft, which evokes the romance of Bedouin tents.
