Im not muslim, but I think this is a nice opportunity for Sen ...
Tell us more about the weaving biz your into ? and how that came about ?
I might get banned for being off topic (quickly slips in this would qualify as shariah lending because it's zero interest and an approved/permitted activity):
A couple of years ago my wife was reading about the Stansborough business in a weekend paper and they were looking for some funding. We got in touch, funded a pile of cash, helped them sort out some of the problems they were facing. There was some "yadda yadda yadda" and the current set up was formed. There is more on their web site, and they work on some of the local productions. As an example, I saw the new Gandalf scarf a few months ago and it was huge (long and wide).
They have their own special flock of sheep, 100+ year old looms and some really great product - a little niche, but reasonable price for the quality. World-wide shipping is normal and the range is quite good.
I posted https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=29027.0
a year ago if people wanted to buy with BTC, but it gets buried there quite quickly.
I thought of eventually moving into the retail side of fibre with alpacastocks in relation to selling for bitcoin which is why I picked up http://mtsocks.com
Id like to eventually buy out a store somewhere, convert it to bitcoin and sell online all over the world.

Thanks to sen for creating the 7seas fund.
