Iran has manufactured the world’s largest carpet. It took seven years for 230 carpet weavers to create the huge carpet. It was put on the Guinness World Records during an international carpet exhibition in the city of Tabriz.

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani introduced the world's largest handwoven carpet Thursday at the opening of the Tabriz International Carpet Fair.

According to local media, 70 different dyes were used for the 600-square-meter carpet, which weighs three tons.

The carpet, which took six years to complete, will be on display at the fair, which runs until Aug. 4 in Tabriz, the capital city of northwestern Iran’s East Azerbaijan province.

Producers of handwoven carpets from Isfahan, Gilan, Qom, Tehran and East and West Azerbaijan provinces as well several foreign countries also showcased their latest products.

Over 5,397,000 tons of Iranian carpets, worth $424.451 million, were exported to over 70 countries with the U.S. standing on top of the importers list, during the past fiscal year (ended March 20, 2019). Germany, the UK, Italy, France, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, Russia, Portugal, Denmark, Sweden and Norway as well as Hungary, Romania, Poland and Ireland are major importers of Iranian carpet.

Persian carpets are sought after internationally for their delicate designs and good quality.
