The Turkmen government plans to give a new impetus to its carpet weaving and develop the industry through privatization of carpet weaving enterprises. Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, addressing a Cabinet meeting, said that to ensure the most favorable conditions for promoting Turkmen carpet industry, it is necessary to carry out privatization.

Turkmenistan famous for its carpets is regarded by carpet experts as descendants of the purest and oldest carpet-weaving traditions in Central Asia.

As these carpets have special shine and velvet, and their color spectrum of sober classic colors starts "flowering" as time goes by, saturating it with more rich and expressive tints. One of the main secrets of beauty and longevity of Turkmen carpets is the natural dyes used by carpet weavers in wool coloring since ancient times.

The Turkmenhaly Public Association includes a large network of carpet weaving companies across the country, as well as structural units, specialize in the primary processing, spinning, and dyeing of wool.

In 2016, the enterprises of “Turkmenhaly” have produced more than 43,000 square meters of carpets and rugs.

Turkmen carpets and rugs, long renowned for their durability and unique designs, are exported to more than 50 countries such as Italy, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and others. Among Turkmen carpets well-known in the West are those made by the Tekke, Yomut, Salor, and Ersari Turkmens and called by those names.

In Turkmenistan’s economic system, textile industry occupies an important place and it is known as a supplier of woolen carpets, as well as cotton and silk textiles of high quality. Tens of textile enterprises worth over $1.6 billion have been built in Turkmenistan throughout the years of independence.

The country seeks to achieve the diversification of the national economy and has already taken steps for the promotion of various industries. The country also aims to raise foreign investments, introduce new technologies, and create the most favorable conditions for investors in its textile industry.
