Persian carpets attract visitors at Athens expo

Hand-woven Persian carpets attracted visitors at the third traditional carpet exhibition of Iran held in Athens, the capital of Greece.

Inaugurating the expo, Mehdi Honardoost, Iranian Ambassador to Greece, hailed Persian carpets as a genuine work of art and stressed on the need for preserving their artistic nature. He sought expansion of Iran's carpet market.

The art of weaving carpets in Iran dates back to ancient Persia and is considered to be one of the most livid examples of Persian art and culture.

Hand-woven rugs and carpets are one of the main non-oil export items of Iran and are exported to over 100 countries.

It is estimated that around 1.2 million people in Iran are involved in making carpets meant for both domestic market and exports.

Persian carpets have good demand in international markets owing to their excellent quality, colour and design.
