Handwoven carpet exports up by 41%
Aug '10
Iran, during the initial four months of the Iranian calendar year, starting March 21, 2010, has exported 2,440 tons of handwoven carpets valued at US $151.05 million.

The figures depict a 41.1 percent rise in the value and 47.35 percent in volume, over the corresponding period of last year.

The country, during the corresponding period last year exported 1,660 tons of handmade carpets totalling to $107.05 million. Director of Iran National Carpet Center, Faisal Mardasi, on an earlier occasion had mentioned that the country's handmade carpet exports are projected to touch $500 million by the Iranian calendar year end.

He further stated that the country, if it manages to offer these hand woven products at relatively more economical rates as compared to India, China and Pakistan, and fine-tunes its designs and colours in accordance with the international demand, then there are better chances for it to increase its share in the global markets.
