Our beloved Wasilaah Clients,
When we were all gradually moving out of Corona restrictions, we were all exposed to the realities of rising inflation and the continuing challenges with global supply chains. Even though Wasilaah produces regionally in Egypt, we have seen knock-on effects on our supply of wood and other basic materials for our furniture. Prices on natural materials have risen gradually over the last year. We tried to replace all traditional imported accessories with local made ones.
Then came the tragedy of the war in Ukraine and the USD vs EGP instability. The turbulence has made supply chains even more unpredictable. Now customs, energy prices and transportation can be added to the volatility of raw material prices.It all adds up to materials scarcity, higher production costs and very little visibility on what the future will bring.
Hopefully these regrettable and uncertain times will soon see its end, and the situation will stabilize. Until then, we need to continuously adjust our prices to reflect the situation. Of course, once you put in an order your price is locked in and secured.
We are sorry if you faced any shipping delays
Thanks for your understanding
