Afghan Rugs to be Showcased Vegas Style!

The next major Afghan Rug Exhibit will occur at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas from January 28-February 1. The event is being sponsored by USAID and organized jointly by the Export Promotion Agency of Afghanistan (EPAA) and the U.S. Department of Commerce.

“Afghan Inspirations: Rug Renaissance, Coveted Traditions” will bring a delegation of authentic rug producers from Afghanistan to exhibit the beauty of the fine art of Afghan rug weaving to a wide audience of international buyers and brokers at the famed World Market Center home furnishings exhibition.

Afghan rugs were introduced into U.S. markets at the world renowned Atlanta America’sMart International Area Rug Show last January. This event will be a continuation of the Embassy of Afghanistan’s support for rug producers from Afghanistan to showcase their intricate work to interested U.S. buyers. The new Rug Exhibit hopes to surpass the success of the Atlanta show, where a complete buyout of all the Afghan rugs occurred just hours after the doors opened.
