Lacy Threads and Leather Straps – $1 Million business in Karachi

AQTH.comNew York Times published a story a few days back about a booming business in the heart of Karachi. A small mom and pop industry run by Adnan Qadeer and Rizwan Qadeer crunching out bondage and fetish goods for the American and European markets. It does go to show, that despite the economic downturn there is tremendous potential for business, though with the latest projection they have received courtesy NY Times I just have concern for their safety in light of the radicalization in Karachi.

New York Times – Deep in the nation’s commercial capital, just next door to a mosque and the offices of a radical Islamic organization, in an unmarked house two Pakistani brothers have discovered a more liberal and lucrative use for the scourge: the $3 billion fetish and bondage industry in the West.

Their mom-and-pop-style garment business, earns more than $1 million a year manufacturing 2,000 fetish and bondage products, including the Mistress Flogger, and exporting them to the United States and Europe.

The Qadeer brothers, Adnan, 34, and Rizwan, 32, have made the business into an improbable success story in a country where bars are illegal and the poor are often bound to a lifetime in poverty.
