TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iran’s world share in hand-woven rugs and carpets exports totals 35 percent, said Chairman of Iran’s National Carpet Center Mohammad Baqer Aqa-Alikhani, adding the country’s carpet exports in 2012 reached over 420 million dollars.
“Iran’s hand-woven carpet exports hit 427 dollars last year. Hand-woven carpet exports in the world hit $1.350.000,” he said.
India, China, Pakistan and Afghanistan are Iran’s competitors in the industry, he said, adding proper carpet promotions in the foreign market, sending foreign delegations to other countries and identifying new markets would help boosting carpet exports.
He also added Iran plans to hold a carpet expo on September 23-29 and invite foreign traders.
