A suspicious carpet including heroin is Afghanian not Iranian
An Iranian carpet consignment, in which the heroin was embedded, was discovered in Lapliz-Germany, we read on news. After considering and hearing from a carpet industry expert, it was cleared that the consignment was Afghanian carpet.
Why it play game with Iranian carpet reputation? Why the experts are not able to distinguish Iranian carpet from Afghanian one? Mr.Hossein Kazemi Hamed, the skillful weaver of world cup carpet, asked. Such things are intended to change the world perception into negative toward the Iranian carpet, he said. Mr.Hossein Kazemi Hamed’s words were confirmed by Mr.David Darmany, the liable person of Darmany Repairing Carpet Company, during his interview in USA. He also said the mentioned carpet was a copied Kazk design which is woven in Afghanistan and foisted as Iranian carpet. Mr.Darmany also condemned such measures which caused disreputability of Iranian carpet and called for organizing a trans-governmental workgroup to save and return the reputability to the Iranian carpet.
It is necessary to mention that in recent years because of lack of attention of Iranian authorities, the Iranian carpet has been copied under the name of Iran in the neighbor countries and even in China and exported to the European and USA markets. This matter has not only caused the irreparable damages to the carpet weavers, economy and one of the most important our country exports but also to present the carpets with low quality in the world markets under the name of Iranian carpet.
Hopping to save this industry with the Iranian greatness from the discredit by establishing Iranian carpet formations and union of the maters and great skillful.
