Turkmen carpet weaving added to the list of cultural heritage

The original Certificate confirming the inclusion of the traditional Turkmen carpet weaving into the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity has been delivered to Turkmenistan. The unanimous adoption of the resolution on this issue took place during the 14th meeting of the UNESCO Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Global Intangible Cultural Heritage.

It is a well-known fact that traditional Turkmen carpet weaving is one of the integral components of social and cultural life of the state. It is also a determining factor of the overall cultural identity of the Turkmen people. Having passed through a series of historical periods, the Turkmen carpet has concentrated the schematic symbols of past events in its designs and has embodied the national spiritual and moral values.
