Indian Carpet Expo showcases Indian artisans' skills

The Indian Carpet Expo was successfully held in Delhi with an aim to promote the cultural heritage and weaving skills of Indian hand-made carpets and other floor coverings amongst the visiting overseas carpet buyers. The event was an ideal platform for international carpet buyers to establish business relationships with Indian manufacturers and exporters.

The four-day event received an overwhelming response from member exporters. Close to 305 exhibitors from across India displayed their products at the show. Around 397 carpet buyers from over 60 countries visited the expo. A special theme pavilion where the experts of the industry showcased the process of carpet weaving through the concept of ergonomic and flexible tufting frame was also set up at the expo.

The 33rd edition of the expo organised by the Carpet Export Promotion Council (CEPC) under the aegis of Government of India, served as a unique platform for buyers to source the best handmade carpets, rugs and other floor coverings under one roof. The Expo has established itself as a popular sourcing platform for carpet buyers from all over the globe. India's unique capability in adapting to any type of design, colour, quality and size, as per the specifications of carpet buyers made it a household name in the international market.

The Council provided an exclusive business environment to both carpet importers and manufacturer-exporters, for the ultimate benefit of about two million weavers and artisans, who are employed in this labour-intensive cottage industry.

The Indian Carpet Expo was inaugurated by Union textiles minister Smriti Irani in the presence of Ajay Tamta, minister of state for textiles and Virender Singh, Member of Parliament, Bhadohi.

"We are very glad that CEPC organizes this expo twice every year to promote Indian weavers worldwide. Every year expo generates huge amount of business. We have everything handmade and hand weaved here, which is the major attraction to the foreign buyers," said Tamta.

"India carpet expo is an ideal platform for international carpet buyers, buying houses, buying agents, architects and indian carpet manufacturers and exporters to meet and establish long term business relationship. This exhibition is a crucial step towards taking Indian exports of handmade carpet to much greater and newer heights," said Mahavir Pratap Sharma, chairman, CEPC. (KD)
