The exports of carpets from Turkey increased by 9.5 percent to US$ 1.388 billion during the first eight months of the current year compared to exports worth US$ 1.268 billion made during the same period last year, according to the Istanbul Textile and Apparel Exporters’ Association (ITKIB).
 
During the eight-month period, Saudi Arabia was the largest importer of Turkish carpets accounting for US$ 248.26 million or 17 percent of the total Turkish carpet exports, Risale Haber reported quoting AA news agency.
 
Libya, Iraq and Germany were the other main importers of Turkish carpets during the period under review.
 
In August 2013, Turkish carpet exports decreased by 10.2 percent year-on-year to US$ 144.886 million.
 
According to the Research and Development department of ITKIB, Turkish carpet industry has several advantages in terms of production and raw material supply. As a textile producing country, Turkey is able to meet the wool yarn and synthetic yarn needs from the domestic sources.
 
Secondly, the country has geographical proximity to the main markets such as the Middle East, Europe and the CIS states.
 
Moreover, the country has skilled labor force in hand-made carpet industry and know-how in machine-made carpet industry.
