— Iran has made a new carpet with a unique blend of different woods and metals, and it was sold on the Internet to buyers in the U.S. The Tehran Handicrafts Co., a nonprofit, says the new carpet, which the company sells online, has an overall weight of about 3.6 pounds.
It is made from natural materials, including birch, poplar, maple and oak, and features the logo of the Tehran Handichrafts Corp., a branch of the state-owned company.
The rug, which is about two inches wide, is made of soft leather, is lined with bamboo, and is woven in a style called tashi, which means “a mixture.”
Iran Handicarts Co. founder Mahmoud Karroubi said he wanted to bring the handicraft craze to the U: “This is an important step for the future of Iran.”
Karroubi and his company, which started with a single-room-occupancy factory in Tehran in 1996, have created a wide range of handicures for clients.
In 2017, they began making a range of carpet products, including a collection of cushions.
The rug is a new addition to the Tehran-based company’s repertoire.
Karrouabi said the new product is meant to complement the Iran Handicart Co.’s other products.
Karoubi said the Tehran handicart has been selling handmade carpets for the past 10 years.
He said the brand was inspired by the ancient Persian rug.
He said Iran has been using bamboo for a long time, and that the carpet will add an interesting element to the market.
The company has a long history of using bamboo and other natural materials for its carpets, which are usually made of materials such as bamboo and coconut fiber.
Iran’s economy has been suffering for years because of the country’s crippling economic sanctions.
But the sanctions have hurt Iran’s economy in the past few years, and Karroubis hopes the new rug will help revive the country.
“I think the rug is going to be a major success for Iran,” Karroubian said.
“The rug will bring in a lot of business, and the rug has a great taste and quality.”
