TEHRAN. Timing is everything and the violent crackdown of Iran’s government on anti-hijab protesters over Mahsa Amini’s death in police custody could hardly have come a worst time for barberries.

Demand crushed

Trouble is that the new crop arrives at the end of September, which coincided with the protests and the governments rigorous response this year. Suppliers report that customers, who normally visit Iran around this time, cancelled their trips. On top of this, the government is not only cracking down on protesters in a most violent manner but has also restricted internet access and infiltrated social media and other websites. This has made it difficult for suppliers to communicate with their customers and market their products.
