Afghanistan’s Carpet Industry and Its Challenges

The Afghan carpet industry could offer great opportunities to entrepreneurs but today the industry is bogged down with challenges.  

A TOLOnews report found that one of the key challenges is salaries and that experienced carpet makers earn very little to produce carpets that are among the best and most sought after in the world.

Because of these low wages, professional weavers are forced to look for work elsewhere.

According to the carpet union, 40 percent of experienced weavers have left the profession in just the past four years.
