Iran to Become Insanely-Large-Carpet Capital of the World

Iranian weavers have created what they claim is the world's largest handmade carpet, a soccer-field-sized red-and-green colossus bound for an Abu Dhabi mosque and valued at $5.8 million. But Iranians are setting their sights even higher:

[Jalaleddin Bassam, the head of Iran's state carpet company,] said the carpet was an important commission for Iran's carpet-making industry, and said it could lead to further orders.

"Iran is in talks to make similar carpets for Oman and other Gulf countries," he told Agence France-Presse.
