More than 700 firms are displaying their products in an international hand-woven carpet exhibition in Tehran.

A 24th international hand-woven carpet exhibition opened in Tehran on Sunday (August 23). 

More than 700 firms are displaying their products in the exhibition which is the largest in the world. 

Officials say more than 16 percent of the hand-woven carpets Iran exports would normally find their way to US markets, bringing in some $80 million in revenues. But sanctions have seen Iran’s share of the US market shrink.
