Handmade Carpet Exports Reach $180m

About $180 million worth of handmade carpets were exported from Iran during the seven months to Oct. 22, registering a 7.8% increase compared with the similar period of last year, the deputy head of Iran National Carpet Center for economic and commercial affairs, Mohammad Mehdi Farshchi, said. Last year’s exports amounted to $359 million. With about $90 million worth of purchases, the US was the main importer of Persian carpets over the period, Mehr News Agency reported.  “Persian hand-woven carpets are exported to 80 countries,” Hamid Kargar the head of the center, said. In August and on the sidelines of the 26th Iran Handmade Carpet Exhibition held in Tehran’s International Permanent Fairgrounds, Kargar told Financial Tribune that Iran is the biggest exporter of hand-woven carpets with a 30% share in global markets.
