Persian Carpet Grand Exhibition in Tehran September 23-29, 2009
The 18th Persian Carpet Grand Exhibition will be held in Tehran from September 23 to 29, 2009. This exhibition was held in the month of August each year, but because of the fasting month of Ramadan, the organizer has decided to change the dates.
More than 400 exhibitors from all over the country will put their latest and finest rugs and kilims on display. Many antique rug dealers and collectors will also have stands and will participate in this great event.
This is a unique opportunity to go to Tehran, to buy Persian rugs first hand and to save big. You may also participate in many free rug weaving and dyeing workshops. To see a pictorial report on one of these exhibitions, you can visit the link below:
