Persian, Afghani carpets on display at Dubai expo

Jan '12
Several carpet manufacturers and traders from Iran and Afghanistan are showcasing their products at the month-long Carpet Oasis exhibition, currently going on as part of the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) in United Arab Emirates.

The exhibition is providing a platform for carpet traders to promote their products outside their base country and increase their sales volumes.

Carpet manufacturers from Iran travel to Dubai every year to participate in the Carpet Oasis exhibition to cover up for the low volume of sales in their country.

These carpets mostly come from Isfahan, Qom and Tabriz regions of Iran.

In recent times, the volume of carpet sales has decreased in Iran due to the dwindling number of tourists. It is estimated that the number of tourists visiting Iran are currently only about 2 percent of the number visiting the country six years ago.

Also on display at the exhibition are carpets from Afghanistan. Tanweer FBMI's carpet selection is a major draw due to feel good factor along with the price tag. These carpets are handwoven using indigenous Afghan wool.

DSF offers a 10,000 dirhams discount for those setting up a stall at the exhibition, which is a good incentive for many struggling traders. This enables shoppers to buy carpets at discounted prices at the exhibition. Sometimes, carpets are available at rates that are cheaper than the prices at which they are available in the country of their production.

Some carpet makers sell their last stock at lower rates so as to avoid carrying the leftover inventory back to their countries.
