Today, Turkmenistan received the original certificate of inclusion of the traditional Turkmen carpet making art of Turkmenistan on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
One will recall that on December 12, 2019, at the 14th meeting of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of UNESCO, the decision to inscribe the traditional Turkmen carpet making art of Turkmenistan in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity was unanimously approved.

The Turkmen carpet has gone through centuries, reflecting milestones of history and spiritual and moral values of the people in its ornaments.
