Afghan Carpet weaving is a very popular product and handicraft which is making by the talented and hard worker men and women in Afghanistan and attracted the attention of economists in field of trade precious and cultural products in Afghanistan.

Despite of effective role in the economy of Afghan, but unfortunately this product is exporting to other countries by the name of another country that is not belong to this valuable product but and its creators, in the other hand high quality handmade carpets of Afghanistan is exporting in the name of Pakistan to the world trade markets.

According to the latest news from this important product, annually about two million square meters of carpet is produced in Afghanistan.
