She described the global registration of a badge for handwoven carpets as a great move towards preserving and protecting this original art industry.

The badge was designed by a South Korean company for free, and registered with the support of WIPO, she added.

Supported by WIPO, a website also will be designed and soon launched to introduce and develop the brand of Iranian carpet.

Rafe’ added that production, exports and job creation are three main strategies to strengthen the status of Persian carpets.
