A Turkish company has canceled an order of two containers of carpets from Israel's Carmel Carpets, saying it can't sell Israeli products at this time.
"We believe that in the current situation we won't be able to sell carpets made in Israel," Bytex CEO explained.
Each container is said to be worth some NIS 100,000 (about $26,700). The Bytex CEO asked to cancel the order for fear it would cause him financial damage and tarnish his image.
Carmel Carpets has been in contact with this client for some 10 years. "We created a friendly, almost family-like relationship," says a Carmel manager.
