Iran's handwoven carpet exports may miss target
17
Jan '13
Exports of handwoven carpets from Iran are unlikely to meet the target of US$ 1 billion set for the current Iranian calendar year that ends on March 19, 2013.
 
During the first three quarters of ongoing Iranian calendar year that started on March 20, 2012, Iran’s carpet exports have registered US$ 330 million, according to Iran’s National Carpet Centre.
 
Iran exports its handwoven carpets to over 50 countries, including Japan, Germany and Italy. 
 
Hand-woven rugs constitute a key non-oil product of Iran. Russia, China, Indonesia, Brazil and South Africa are some of the emerging markets for Iranian rugs.
 
According to experts, quality of the Iranian rugs, coupled with their luring colours and designs, are the main reasons for the Persian carpets being in demand all over the world.
 
More than 1.2 million people are employed in Iranian carpet sector.
