Iran today unveiled what it said was the world's largest handwoven carpet, worth $US5.8 million ($6.76 million) and bigger than a football pitch, to be laid out in a United Arab Emirates mosque. The carpet contains 38 tonnes of wool and took 1200 weavers 18 months in three villages in northeastern Iran to complete.

The carpet, measuring 5625 square metres, was made up of nine pieces which will be stitched together in the UAE to cover the floor of the central praying area of the massive mosque.

There are 2.2 billion knots in the carpet, which was made with the best wool from the southern Iranian town of Sirjan and from New Zealand in 25 colours using 20 different natural dies, Bassam said. Link
