Mr. Mahmoud Tavalei - President of Iran Machine-made Carpet Producers Association and Vice President of Kashan Chamber of Commerce and Industry - said: “China is one of the world's most ancient civilizations, same as Persia. According to founded manuscripts, Persian had exported wool carpets to China since 1600 years ago. Persian Carpets were always ornamental part of palaces, manors and significant places all over the world. In past decades, high quality machine-made flooring with oriental and modern patterns have been added to this art-industry. This year we are organizing the Iranian pavilion at Domotex asia to exhibit and showcase exquisite carpets and rugs from Persia. Revival of Chinese and Persian bonding cultures is our main goal and we believe that the elegant products we offer, are befitting Chinese people, who always love kneading with art, beauty and culture”.
