The 29th International Exhibition of Handmade Carpets is planned for 18-25 August 2020 as part of the Tehran International Fair. According to IRNA, the national and international exhibitions in Iran had to be postponed for three months due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The applications for participation in the exhibition have to be registered on the website www.titexgroup.com, where pavilions can be booked as well.
Last year, Iran exported handmade carpets worth 50 million dollars, which was 90% less than in 2018. In fact, 2019 was the worst of ten years for the Iranian carpet industry, according to the CEO of National Association for Handmade Carpet Producers’ Cooperatives.
Last year, the main buyers of Iranian handmade carpets were the UAE, China, Germany and South American countries.
