Win­ning Car­pets

Southasia - - BRIEFS -

car­pets are fa­mous all over the world for their beauty. This was proved once again when the car­pets won first po­si­tion at an ex­hi­bi­tion in the United Arab Emi­rates. Around 160 com­pa­nies


from the Mid­dle East, Cen­tral Asia and South Asia par­tic­i­pated in the ex­hi­bi­tion. Most of the car­pets from Afghanistan were wo­ven by Afghan women.

The Afghan car­pet in­dus­try has a his­toric back­ground but its pop­u­lar­ity has been go­ing down in re­cent years due to the neg­li­gence of the gov­ern­ment and lack of pa­tron­age.
