The House of Kamari owned the six largest storage buildings within the Warehouse District of Huzuz. In addition to this, they owned over a dozen factories within the Clothiers' District that processed their silk.
Base of OperationsEdit
This merchant family was based out of Huzuz, the City of Delights.
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. 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.
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.
