Iran’s Carpet Policy with Saudi Arabia

In an unexpected display of diplomacy and artistic finesse, Iran’s age-old tradition of carpet weaving has taken center stage as an exquisite handmade carpet, adorned with the likeness of Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), was revealed at the 30th International Handmade Carpets Fair in Tehran. This exceptional creation, valued at an astonishing $10,000, has garnered widespread attention and piqued the curiosity of both local and international audiences.

The unveiling of this extraordinary carpet coincides with the delicate process of rebuilding diplomatic relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia, which includes the reopening of embassies and the return of ambassadors. Iran’s decision to prominently showcase MBS’s image on this opulent carpet is seen as a gesture of goodwill, aimed at fostering warmer ties between the two nations.

Iran’s longstanding tradition of carpet weaving has often featured depictions of revered Muslim sites, religious figures, and influential political leaders. Nevertheless, the inclusion of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s likeness on this carpet marks an unconventional and unexpected twist in Iran’s diplomatic overtures.

News of this extraordinary carpet quickly spread across Farsi social media platforms, sparking a viral sensation and attracting the attention of official media outlets.  While the precise motivations behind this unusual carpet choice remain a subject of intrigue, it serves as a testament to the power of cultural diplomacy and underscores the enduring appeal of Persian craftsmanship.
