Around 1000 weavers are working to produce world's largest carpet which will be laid at the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi.

During a nationwide seminar on Persian hand-woven carpet in Mashhad, capital of northeastern province of Khorassan Razavi, the Managing Director Seyyed Jalaleddin Bassam of Iran Carpet Company told reporters that the carpet was nearing completion.

The carpet measures about 6,500 square meters.

Earlier also Iran has weaved a large carpet measuring 4,343 square meters for the Qabus Azam Mosque in Muscat, the capital of Oman. It was made by 550 weavers and it took three years to complete the carpet.
