80% decline in Afghan carpet exports

afghan carpetsAccording to Afghan Ministry of Commerce and Industries (MoCI), carpet exports have declined by 80% in the past six years.

Carpet industry was once one of Afghanistan’s flourished industries that had made a niche in various international markets. Carpets were the second major exports of Afghanistan, accounting for 47% of the country’s export earnings in 2002 and 2003.

Officials have attributed the drop in carpet exports to the lack of washing and processing facilities in the country.

Afghan carpet sellers claim that Afghan carpets are currently sent to Pakistan for washing and processing purposes, where they are then exported to other markets under Pakistan’s trademark.
