Season's Greetings!
The world has entered the ‘Digital Age’ and the need of the hour for every business is to reinvent itself on the global arena. The Indian Handmade Carpet sector is no different than any other. Our only hope is to reach the world with the positives of the Indian Handmade Carpets against the Machine-made Carpets and bring in the change which global buyers want to see in our work processes, designs and quality.
The Carpet Export Promotion Council is committed towards showcasing the Indian Handmade Carpets on the World stage and will continue to do so. The world market is as diverse, in its preferences in buying carpets, as the types of carpets originating from the different regions of the World. Hence, our strategy for marketing in each market has to be as different. U.S. is our biggest market and while we continue to Brand and market our products there,
