It is my understanding that anyone with enough money can place an order with any of the bigger shisha factories and have a private label slapped on it while the actual product could be the same as a better known brand or a custom made product. I don't know this for sure but it seems plausible and frankly it wouldn't seem that shocking as it costs a lot to whip up a factory and buy the raw materials for shisha in bulk. I do know that plenty of super high end cigars make inexpensive nock-offs that differ only in packaging so...
this is exactly what I was told.
