Exports of hand-woven carpets stood at 900 tons worth $47 million in spring 2015, the report said.

As Mehr news agency reported in early June, head of Iran National Carpet Center (INCC) confirmed acceleration of Iran’s hand-woven carpet exports to world market by return of traditional customers including the U.S.

“Despite unfavorable export figures for the Iranian hand-woven carpet last year, a significant growth was perceived at the beginning of the new Iranian calendar year (began March 20, 2016) promising a better future for economic activists,” Hamid Kargar said at the time.
