I also wonder how much of a part the Chinese have played in ruining Arab carpet weavers? They’re known for dumping loads of cheap (and often counterfeit) products on any market that catches their attention, driving out the traditional players. Just look at what they did to traditional Nigerian clothing manufacturing.

If you are going to tell a sad story about Mamud, put up a number or way to get in contact with him so people from the West can buy his carpets. They eat these things up.
