World's largest silk carpet on show in Dubai

The world's largest silk carpet has been put on display in Dubai as part of a shopping event.

People on flights to Dubai who want to pick up a truly unique memento of their trip could consider picking up the world's largest silk carpet.

The huge carpet is being showcased at the Carpet Oasis in the emirate as part of the ongoing fashion event taking place there, Emirates 24/7 reported.

Priced at $1 million (£635,000), it is the most expensive carpet being displayed at the exhibition.

Every now and then, the most expensive carpet is sold, so that title passes on to the carpet next in line," says Khalid Ahmed Al Muadhin, who helped to organise the show.

Only handmade carpets are allowed to be showcased as part of the Carpet Oasis event, which takes place in Dubai each year.
