PR9.NET February 13, 2007 - Norwich, UK - Here is some great news for true connoisseurs of art. Handmade Tunisian tapestries, Shishas, Mabkhara, ornate Tunisian lanterns and more rare artifacts sourced deep from the hinterlands of Tunisia, are now available for purchase at the recently launched online souk at

This is the first time ever that such rare and coveted masterpieces from Tunisia have been made available for online purchase. Prior to the launch of the online store, one would either have to search for these products in the actual souks of Tunisia, or settle for poor quality imitations available elsewhere.
In the words of Kris Heavens – Director of, "The artisans of Tunisia are not in it for the money; they are in it to ensure that the traditional skills and dedication that originally founded the Tunisian economy remain alive and well. We have made a conscious effort to source products from the best of artists and craftsmen in Tunisia and now feel we have an obligation to keep these fine crafts alive, at the same time allowing discerning buyers to take advantage of the opportunity to get a hold of these rare products."

The wide range of Tunisian artifacts at the online souk include: rugs and textiles, jewelry, pipes, kitchenware, perfumes and mabkhara, metal work, lights, olive wood, glass and a whole lot of other exotic handcrafted objects that come straight from the workshops of the finest craftsmen and craftswomen in Tunisia. The currently available selection is only just the beginning and more products (and categories) will be added routinely.

Most commonly, arts and handicrafts claimed to be from Tunisia are usually the result of mass production of poor quality work in the sweatshops of other countries. Through the new online store, is hopeful that the rich cultural heritage of the country will be effectively showcased; the hard work and talent of the artisans will receive much deserved recognition; and that - around the world - true lovers of art will earn the chance to buy original masterpieces from Tunisia.

The store is also offering a special 5% discount on all Sidi Bou Said Birdcages - which, in the words of Mr. Heavens, "are quintessentially Tunisian."
