On 5 November 2017 The Guardian reported:
A small shop in England selling work from Afghanistan and elsewhere is helping people from conflict zones make a living. From a small corner window display on London's Baker Street, Edmund le Brun and Flore de Taisne are trying to help the victims of war. Their pop-up shop, Ishkar, which is also online, sells crafts from conflict zones. Among the items on display are gorgeous hand-blown glasses in green, lapis lazuli blue and turquoise, intricate kilim rugs, fine-woven camel hair shawls, earrings and necklaces, and knives.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of business and world peace, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
In late 2015, as a trial run, Edmund and Flore ordered a batch of cufflinks made by craftsmen in Kabul, to sell as Christmas presents. They quickly sold out, so they set about sourcing a wider range for the website and pop-up, which launched earlier this year.
. . . The next phase of the business will be to source products from other conflict zones. ... The current focus is on Mali, where traditional businesses have been hollowed out by the civil war since 2012.
