Earlier, President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov said that Turkmen carpets, which have been perfected over the centuries and have become an integral part of the life of citizens, are a decoration of home.
The Turkmen national art of carpet weaving is included in the UNESCO List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The world’s largest handmade carpet with a total area of 301 square meters was woven in Turkmenistan in 2001 and entered the Guinness Book of Records in 2003.
A distinctive feature of Turkmen carpets is beauty, strength and durability. In the Central Asian country, the carpet is approved as one of the national symbols and declared a state property. In 1992, the «Turkmen Carpet Day» officially received the status of a state holiday. Turkmen carpets have also appeared in famous movies and TV Shows many times.
