So not only coffee apparently, but brilliant scenes of local realism like those painted by Yemeni artist Mazher Nizar, perhaps coupled with other such aesthetic and mercantile crafts/products from local artisans, indeed could prove to be an additional billion dollar plus opportunity for sustainable stability and prosperity in the apex of all gateways to the Arabian Peninsula (Jazira Al-'Arabiyya). Thanks to the persistence and vision of folks like Anda and company at Al-Mokha, there is without a doubt potential here for greater variety and exposure of the possibilities for embetterment that can and should be available to the average Yemeni if properly channeled and promoted. The cards themselves are composed of top quality paper, and are relatively affordable proportionate to the original and reproduction full size options. As a whole these are superb, and I hope to see further items of this caliber readily available beyond the basic coffee trade.
I know Anda, he showed me the reprints, I thought they were the real thing even though some of the colors don’t match perfectly with the originals they are beautiful. Anda is modest in his email saying they are just gorgeous, in my opinion the original paintings and the reprints are absolutely marvelous! I spent over an hour in choosing three greeting cards, and loved them all. The paper quality of the cards and the envelopes give the best vibes for a card. Anda ended up giving me the cards for free after seeing how much I likes them. You definitely can’t go wrong with any of them.
