Thousands of square meters of Afghan handmade carpets sold under Pakistan’s name

Afghan carpetPakistan generates millions of revenue annually from the carpet business by selling thousands of square meters of Afghan handmade carpets under Pakistan’s name.

Afghan carpet weavers residing in Peshawar, Pakistan have said Pakistani merchants have monopolized Afghan handmade carpets by purchasing them from Afghan at low prices and exporting them to the international market under the shadow of Pakistan.

The carpet weavers have called on the Afghan government to provide work opportunities for them in their own country so that they do not have to live in a foreign country to run their business.

In the meantime, Afghanistan’s trade representative in Khyber Pakhtoon Khowa, Mirwais Yousefzai, said efforts were underway to improve the business situation for Afghan carpet weavers.

He cited lack of security as one of the main hindrances to the growth of carpet industry.
