Pakistani hand knotted carpets again in demand
Oct '11
Pakistan made hand knotted carpets are again in demand due to the efforts of Pakistan Carpet Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PCMEA).

While speaking at the Pakistan Hand Knotted Carpets Exhibition 2011, Commerce Minister Makhdoom Amin Fahim congratulated PCMEA for being able to attract customers in the US and Europe towards hand-made carpets with 'Made in Pakistan' label.

Pakistan Hand Knotted Carpets Exhibition was jointly organized by the PCMEA and Trading Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP).

The Minister said hand-knotted carpets play a major role in alleviation of rural poverty and generating employment opportunities for women in the country.

PCMEA Chairman Kahlid Saeed informed that 85 overseas buyers from different corners of the world visited the Expo.

Factors like global financial crunch and a drop in the purchasing power of the buyers in Western markets have adversely affected carpet exports and resultantly the earnings of the weavers in Pakistan, Mr. Saeed said and thus requested a special mark-up for the industry.

Hand-knotted carpet production is one of the Pakistan's cottage industries and serves as a source of employment for over 1.5 million people, he added.

Chief Organizer of the Pakistan Hand Knotted Carpets Exhibition 2011, Akther Nazeer Cooki called upon the importers, exporters and country's Government to play their respective part for better promotion of Pakistan made hand-knotted carpets.
