(Persia Digest) – The 40th anniversary of the Carpet Museum of Iran was celebrated with the display of forty Safavid carpets.

The Carpet Museum of Iran was inaugurated in Tehran on 11 February 1977 as the first expert museum on handwoven Persian carpets in the world.

A second such museum opened in Mashhad a number of years ago, and another one is in the pipeline to open in Tabriz two years from now.

Many countries in the world know Iran for its handwoven carpets, which is one of its most precious heritages.
