Today, a two-day exhibition and fair dedicated to the development of the carpet, textile and trade industry has been inaugurated at the Sergi koshgi exhibition center, which will also host the XX conference of the world Association of connoisseurs of Turkmen carpet.
Traditionally celebrated on the last Sunday of May, the day of the Turkmen carpet is already difficult to imagine without a large-format exhibition of the best examples of national carpet weaving. Even now, the Grand exposition representing the country's achievements in the field of carpet weaving, textiles and trade is endowed with a special meaning, because on December 12 last year, the Turkmen art of carpet making was included in the representative list of the intangible cultural heritage of humanity by UNESCO.
"This is a clear evidence of the recognition by the world community of our amazing carpets created by the skilled hands of Turkmen women, their talent as a delightful example of folk art," President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov said in his welcome Address to the participants of the exhibition-fair, which was listened to with great attention by the audience at the opening ceremony.
