More than 3 million square meters of handmade carpets are annually woven in Iran, two-thirds of which are exported and the rest is used to meet the domestic demand, the head of Iran National Carpet Center said.

“More than 3,000 tons of hand-woven carpets worth $269 million were exported from Iran during the eight months to Nov. 21, registering a 31% rise compared with the similar period of last year,” Hamid Kargar was also quoted as saying by IRNA.  

“Last year, exports amounted to $359 million. Persian hand-woven carpets are exported to 80 countries,” he added. With about $90 million worth of purchases, the US was last year’s top importer of Persian carpets.
