Latvian lingerie manufacturer New Rosme has reportedly opened its first store in Iraq, located in the city of Najaf.
A spokesperson for the company said:
"Although Najaf is one of the most religious cities in Iraq, where publicly exposing a woman's beauty is forbidden more than in any other part of the country, the store is very popular”.
According to a report from Baltic Course, the company is considering opening other stores in Iraq.
The company is owned by the Swedish holding company Swegmark Invest AB.
