The organisers of the event are the Women’s Union of Turkmenistan, the National Centre for Trade Unions and the Turkmenhaly State Association. The main purpose of the competition is to popularise the art of handmade carpet weaving and to preserve its best traditions. For several hours, a special atmosphere of creativity reigned under the vaults of the museum. Representatives of each ve­layat performed in three categories. Based on the literary works of the national leader Living Legend and Heavenly Beauty, the contestants quoted from these works, telling about the centuries-old history of the Turkmen carpet, a reflection of the history of the Turkmen people. Carpet patterns re­veal folk wisdom and natural beauty, which conditioned the longevity of the art.
