This is henna from Yemen .......... pic taken 24 hours after
application. Sam Yemen Co. is the exporter and the contact information
listed below. If you like what you see in this pic ......... say
hello to Sam Yemen!

I've tried it 4 times now, on 3 different people, and with terps, the
stain is consistently good .... email me if you want more details.

I put the paste on my hand here 24 hours ago, gave it a quick NS spray
and went off to class .... some fell off, some didn't, good stain no
matter what! When the paste came off (I did 3 steams) the color was
screaming red orange. I expect most of it to darken to near black

The person to contact if you're interested in imports is
Sam Yemen Co. Ltd.
Mohamed Al-Asha'f
The General Manager
Sana'a - Yemen

I did microscope tests on this .. there is absolutely NO green dye,
and once sifted, the texture is outstanding. Judge the color for
yourself. Mohamed says he'll grind and sift to an importer's
specifications ... talk to him about that. Email me if you want more
specific information on sifting, stain, micro pic and handling

Oh ... and this design is adapted from one of Erfan's Moroccan and
Tunisian patterns from his upcoming book!
