Iranian blind artists weave carpet of Tokyo 2020

Three blind artists from the southeastern Iranian province of Kerman wove a carpet that shows the logo of Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games to show their interest to Iranian Para athletes.

The carpet has been hand-woven by Behrouz Akbari, Zohreh Yazdani and Moein Kordzadeh with round-the-clock efforts in 25 days, according to a provincial report on Monday.

The three blind artists did so under the supervision of a master weaver, Shirin Sheikh-Mozaffari.


The hand-woven carpet was unveiled upon the arrival of Iranian javelin thrower Saeed Afrooz in Kerman.

Afrooz, who is from Kerman Province, won gold medal at Tokyo Paralympics after shattering men’s F34 category world record.
