|He made my table cloth|
I had my eyes on a beautiful hand made table cloth which took the 78 years old Mr. Hassan 5 days to complete it. The more colors and layers printed on the cotton material the more expensive it gets. Made from 100% natural materials, the colors are drawn from natural sources. The vibrant pink is extracted from mixing pomegranate and yogurt, while the ocean blue is derived from lapis lazuli rock and the vivid orange is drawn from saffron. How interesting!
He priced the merchandise for 40 USD and I did not want to bargain that much for his skill and effort. Anyway, the translator told me that the old man is happy to sell it for 35 USD and I am perfectly contented to pay the price. He printed his name at the back of the table cloth and the transaction was completed.
