Mardasi also informed that, during the said period, exported carpets weighed 16,254 tons, which shows a 38.3 percent rise as compared to the same period last year, which was 11,747 tons.

Currently, Iran is the world leader in exports of hand-woven carpets. Persian rugs are in great demand for their intricate design and skilled craftsmanship, hence, Iran exports carpets to over 100 nations around the world. Carpet-weaving is one of the most renowned expressions of Persian culture and art and it hails back to the historic Persia.

Around 1.2 million Iranian weavers manufacture carpets for both local markets and global exports. The country manufactures 5 million square meters of carpets on a yearly basis, of which 80 percent are sold in world markets. In 2007, Iran had earned $750 million from exports of carpet.
