Ka’aba_hajj_kiswah_islam_2m_mecca Al-mukarramah_makkah_saudi Arabia_ramadan_musl For Sale
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:
Very Large piece: 2.04m x 1.24m Excellent Condition- No repairs, stains or damages.(If you see some circular spots they are from the camera flash)I was given two pieces of Ka’aba cloth when I was in Saudi Arabia. One was very large, one was smaller and I already sold that piece.Now unfortunately I have to sell this very big piece. My daughter translate the writing on the edge as: “Place of the Honorable Kiswah Factory --- Mecca al-Mukarramah.” I hope that is correct. Excellent condition – it has some soft creases from folding which I believe can be steamed or ironed out. I think the material is silk - it feels like silk - but I have no way of knowing. I do not know if this piece actually hung on the Ka'aba. I will not lie and say it did if I am not sure.The pieces were given to me by a Government official.
Friends and Brothers who are writing to me thank you for your interest. I am being asked about this piece and how I arrived at its pricing etc: First, it is true that I
don't know if this piece actually hung on the Ka'aba. I did not ask Prince xxxx
when he gifted me the two pieces. It would have been rude and disrespectful and
I will not misrepresent the pieces. Second, the small piece I sold, which was
about half the size of this one and also did not have the gold writing along
one edge, sold for $750. Third, there is someone who sells 20cmx20cm pieces for
about US$17 per piece that would make this piece worth over $3000 if used for
commercial purposes - which I hope they don't!!! Fourth, if it was known to
have actually been on the Ka'aba it would be worth much more than what I am
asking for a piece this size! It is those factors I considered in setting my
price - especially as I am using the money to help continue my daughter's
