Tehran to host carpet exhibit
The 17th International Hand-Woven Carpet Exhibition will open in Tehran from August 22-28.
Announcing this, director of Iran National Carpet Center noted that some 70 tradesmen from 35 American, European and Asian countries will showcase their products in an area covering 20,000 square meters in the event.
Morteza Faraji called the effective efforts of Iranian embassies as the main factor behind an increase in foreign countries enthusiasm for participation in the exhibition.
"The event is a best venue for introducing Persian carpet industry to the world," Faraji said. --IRNA
