The textile sellers of the town say the fabrics were brought into town last week and made according to their demands.

“The material was imported into Kurdistan from South Korea,” Huner Muhiddin, one the textile sellers in the markets of Kirkuk, told Kirkuk Now.

He added, “As textile sellers we mostly produce products for the political campaigns and Nawroz the Kurdish new year celebration. We sell many traditional Kurdish dresses made from these cloths and each one is sold for ID 15000.”

The Iraqi Parliament election is scheduled to take place on the 30th of April 2014 and the electoral campaigning ought to start the beginning of April 14.
