First-ever Carpet-processing Factory opens in Herat

The carpet-processing factory, a US-funded project, was inaugurated on Saturday in the industrial park in Western Herat.

The factory is a big help for Afghan carpet weavers who used to send their carpets to Pakistan for processing and washing. The neighboring country would then export the carpets abroad with the “made-in –Pakistan” label on them.

Carpets are the oldest and the main handicrafts of Afghanistan, particularly of Herat. The factory would help the weavers to facilitate the carpet processing and help boost the industry in western provinces.

The newly established factory, which is executed on 4,000 square meters of land, costs about USD 500,000 (25.3 million afs).

According to carpet-weavers and exporters union head, Mohammad Rasoul Faiq, 700,000 square metres of carpets of 72 different kinds were produced annually in the western zone.
