Iran Hand-Woven Carpet Exports at $424m Last Year

Some 5,400 tons of hand-woven Persian carpets worth $424 million were exported from Iran in the last fiscal year (ended March 20, 2018), registering an increase of 18.11% in value compared to the year before, statistics from the Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration show.
Persian hand-woven carpets are exported to about 80 countries.
The United States, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Lebanon, the UAE, Kuwait, Qatar and Japan are traditional buyers of Iranian carpets.
Hamid Kargar, chairman of Iran National Carpet Center, said new customers have emerged in recent years, namely China, Russia, South Africa and some Latin American countries, IRNA reported.
International economic sanctions imposed on Iran over its nuclear energy program have hampered Iran’s carpet industry.
