According to the data published by the Statistical Committee, the production of carpets and rugs decreased by 76.5% in January-December 2020.

As the Committee informed Panorama.am, 7.4 tons of carpets were produced in the republic during the mentioned period, and 31.5 tons in 2019.

It should be noted that 31.5 tons of carpets and rugs were produced in the republic in 2019, increasing by 19.8% as compared with 2018.

The decrease of production is also connected with the war unleashed by Azerbaijan, as a result of which the carpet weaving economies in Artsakh suffered significantly.
