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.
