Iran : Persian carpet production shrinks
March 7, 2007
According to the Soleiman Madadpour, the Managing Director of the Company for Export Development and Carpet Evaluation revealed that the carpet production in Persia has decreased a lot. The latest figures of the carpet production shows that it has decreased to five million square meters from the earlier 7.5 million square meters which resulted into the redundancy of 900,000 employees.One of the reasons for this decline is that the Iranian hand-woven carpet lacks specific identity in international carpets where fake carpets are found in plenty.Madadpour proposed that Persian carpets should be provided with IDs after undergoing quality control and National Carpet Center should hold exhibitions in order to pull up the carpet export out of the existing impasse.
