In order to create the most favorable conditions for bringing the Turkmen carpet weaving to a new level, it is necessary to ensure the privatization of this industry, Turkmenistan’s President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov said.
He made the remarks addressing a meeting of the country’s Cabinet of Ministers, according to the Turkmen government.
Turkmenhaly State Association includes a large network of enterprises of carpet-making operating across the country, as well as structural units specialized in the primary processing, spinning and dyeing of wool.
In 2016, the enterprises of Turkmenhaly produced more than 43,000 square meters of carpets and rugs.
One of the main advantages of Turkmen carpets is high density, which ranges from 200 to 400,000 knots per square meter or more. Carpet pattern becomes clear and expressive thanks to the high density. (Trend/Business World Magazine)
