Jan '10
The hand-knotted carpets manufactured in Nepal, exclusively for Turkey have attracted the consumers in the country as increased input prices as well as labor costs in Turkey have resulted in a hike in prices of locally-made handmade carpets.

Several carpet manufacturers of the Turkey have started producing carpets by consuming around 70 percent synthetic fibre owing to the soaring costs of 100 percent woolen carpets.

Selling prices of handmade Turkish carpets tumbled down to 100 to 150 Turkish Liras per square meter from 500 to 600 Liras on account of using synthetic fibres in carpets. As well as, the people who like to purchase excellent handmade carpets are choosing Nepali hand-knotted carpets as they carry bright colours and beautiful designs, which is in sync with the modern life of Turkish people.

High labor and input costs in the country is compelling carpet entrepreneurs to import carpets from countries such as Afghanistan, Pakistan and especially from Nepal.
