Monumental buildings, landmarks, landscapes and archaeological remains are virtually immovable and relatively well protected by law. However, those small movable objects in contemporary and traditional culture that are used in everyday life are changing and disappearing faster than ever because of modernization and globalization. These items have no formal status or protection. They are often disappearing without description or study, and are discarded or sold. Traditional veils worn by Bedouin in the Egyptian desert are such objects; these veils are often sold to tourists without considering their value as heritage for a fast changing culture. Tourists most of the time do not recognize them as valuable heritage objects either. In this manner museum pieces of traditional culture are often sold or lost. We would like to get these veils, jewelry and clothing away from the sphere of mere souvenirs and into the realm of heritage: wearable heritage.
