The House of Al-Kamari was one of the richest merchant families in Huzuz in 1367 DR.[note 1][1]

They claimed to make the finest silks in all of Al-Toril.[2]

OrganizationEdit

The House of Kamari owned the six largest storage buildings within the Warehouse District of Huzuz.[1] In addition to this, they owned over a dozen factories within the Clothiers' District that processed their silk.[2]

Mu'izzi al-Kamar was the head of the Al-Kamari.[2]

Mamluks from the Diligent Mamluk Society were employed to guard their wares.[1]

Base of OperationsEdit

This merchant family was based out of Huzuz, the City of Delights.[1]

HistoryEdit

Silk and other expensive fabrics were the focus of the House of Al-Kamari. The merchant house was able to instill pride in their workers, earning their careful attention to detail when handling the delicate silk.[1] Much of their silk came from large mulberry orchards located south of Huzuz. Silk moths fed on the mulberry until their cocoons were harvested. The Al-Kamari conducted experiments to see if spider silk would be another viable option.[2]

The Al-Kamari employed over 1,000 people in Huzuz, most of whom were women. They never hired anyone who had rough or calloused hands, fearing that a worker with rough hands would snag their silk.[1]

Rumors & LegendsEdit

Because of their corruption by the yikaria, which was unknown to the entirety of Huzuz, the Al-Kamari's were the unintentional enemies of the Grand Caliph.[3]
