The Jumeirah district was named after the ancient Jumeirah people, who once lived in the area of today’s Emirates. They lived mainly of fishing and pearl diving. Then as the first foreigner merchandisers arrived and started to show interest in the quite rare pearl collections and other handicrafts of the Jumeirah people, they decided to start merchandising with them. It is from those times, the Jumeirah area, together with its people started to get richer and gain their worldwide known skills in doing business. Of course, the role of the Jumeirah beach has always been a key-role because of the growing water-traffic of merchandising ships.
