Iranian weavers make world's largest handwoven carpet

Iranian weavers have registered a new record in the Guinness World Records for the world’s largest hand-woven carpet.
 
The Iranian carpet, that broke the earlier record, is 133 metre long and is about 48 metre wide and has been laid in the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
 
Each day around 1,500-2,000 people are visiting the place to see the carpet, which has been embellished with traditional Persian designs and natural colours and has over 2.1 billion knots.
 
It took about 18 months for the 1,200 weavers weaving the carpet in Neyshaboor city in Iran’s north-eastern province of Khorassan Razavi, to complete the job, while working in two shifts a day.
 
The carpet that spreads on 5,634 square meters, weighs about 48 tons. It is made up of 72 percent wool and 28 percent cotton.
