Turkmen Carpets — Masterpieces of High Art

31 May 2024

The capital hosted events marking Turkmen Carpet Day, which is annually celebrated on the last Sunday of May – an exhibition of carpets and carpet products, and the XXIV Meeting of the World Association of Turkmen Carpet Connoisseurs.

Turkmen Carpet Day, established as a sign of the recognition and veneration of the unique cultural heritage of the nation – the art of hand-made carpet weaving, in honour of skilled craftswomen, whose talent and inspired work create amazingly beautiful carpets, has become one of the striking examples of the preservation of the age-old decorative and applied arts and unperishable values of the cultural and spiritual heritage of the nation. The carpets that have gained admiration of the world mirror the best qualities of the people and, most importantly, their inherent integrity and high spirituality.
