Whoever pulled off this deal must be a candidate for salesman of the year: Swedish sunbeds will now be exported to Iran.

A firm in Vimmerby employing 30 staff has been authorised by the Iranian authorities to sell solaria to the country.

The first shipment of twelve solaria is already in Iran and more are on the way. The supplier, Ultra Tan AB, claims to be the first in the world to export all-over body tanning equipment to Iran.

"Many of the buyers are private individuals. They want to adopt the western lifestyle but it's hard for them to lie on a beach," said Rolans Laurent, the company's managing director.
