Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of Turkmen Carpet Day.

Carpet-weaving is one of the most ancient forms of Turkmen applied art. Turkmen women have traditionally been taught the craft from an early age.

Pile carpet-weaving is a complicated and long process in which weavers create complex patterns and designs using the ancient and rudimentary methods of production.

It's such an important part of the country's national heritage that it even makes an appearance on the national flag.

In 1992, Turkmen Carpet Day officially became a public national holiday, celebrated annually on the last Sunday in May.

Traditional Turkmen carpet-making art was inscribed on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage of UNESCO in 2019.

Festivities in honor of Turkmen Carpet Day, a celebration of the best masters of carpet weaving and concerts were held all over the country.
