Iran exports of handwoven carpets rise by 23%

Iran’s exports of handwoven carpets have risen by 23 percent during the first ten months of the current Iranian year (March 21, 2017-January 20, 2018), a senior Iranian industrial official announced.

“Exports of handwoven carpets from Iran to 80 countries in the ten-month period hit $336 million,” Iran National Carpet Center Hamid Kargar was quoted as saying by IRNA.

After the nuclear deal between Iran and the six world major powers in 2015, the value of carpet exports has grown significantly.

A total of 29 countries are the main buyers of Iran’s handwoven carpets, among which are one African, 13 Asian, 11 European, and four American countries.

Japan, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, France, Britain, the UAE, Kuwait, Lebanon and Qatar are traditional markets for the Iranian product.
