Khoos are handwoven palm leaves that was traditionally used to make house roofs and floor mats. The dried palm leaves would be collected then cut and washed to weave. The palm leaves can also be naturally dyed in different colors such as purple, green and red.
Very interesting project this was in Nov 2019 at the Artisans House right next to Qasr Al Hosn. It placed french luxury product hand craft makers right next to Emirati handcraft.
