Nia Calvo designs, produces and sells gourd lamps in the USA. They were looking to get gourds lamps from Turkey, reproduction of Nia Calvo’s own design. The lamps should include the electrical system that powers it (with USA electric standards), with rotating lamp bases. Suppliers should be able to organize the shipping and export procedures for the USA and Spain. Suppliers should be able to speak English, be communicative and cooperative.
