Persian Rug Carpet Shows

Two Persian Rug Shows

In a few weeks, there will be the 6th Persian carpet show in the beautiful Island of Kish on the Persian Gulf. This one of kind Persian rug exhibition will be held on April 29 and 30 and May 1 and 2, 2008. In a few months, there will be the 17th Persian carpet Grand Exhibition in Tehran from Aug. 23 to 29, 2008.

It will be good for those who can visit one or two of these specialized rug shows. Producers and exporters from all over Iran will present and unveil their latest weaving and collections. There will be many free weaving, dyeing, and educational carpet workshops. The visitors not only can buy rugs first hand and save big, they can get to know different artistic, and cultural aspects of Persian carpets as well.

Since Kish Island is a free zone, non-Iranian passport holders need no visa to enter and stay in this beautiful resort. It will be fun, vacation and business at the same time. Kish has excellent hotels and shopping centers. Tehran carpet exhibition also has its own advantages and specifications. It is close to Tehran carpet bazaar, and the Carpet Museum of Iran, one of the finest carpet museums in the world.

Do not miss the opportunity to visit Iran, the home of Persian carpet. You will also feel the Persian hospitality. The American rug scholar Barry O'Connell who has visited the Tehran and Kish Persian carpet exhibitions reports:

"Kish is one of the most beautiful places on earth, beaches, fine shopping, and one of the friendliest places in the Middle East for Americans. Many carpets today surpass anything ever made in the world. The shift back to vegetable dyes is fostering a renaissance of village & tribal rugs."
