(TAP) – The 1st edition of the Olympiad of Kef’s Kilim is set for August 25-27, at the initiative of the Tunisian National Handicraft Office (French: ONAT), in association with the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO).

The goal of this event is to boost the artistic weaving sector and to make it a real development driver in the Tunisian north-western region, reads an ONAT press release.

The Kilim weaving is an ancient art, especially for women in the region. It represents 80% of Kef’s handicraft activities, the office said.

through this event, the ONAT seeks to promote and develop this local product so as to attract new markets, develop the employability in the region and therefore counter rural exodus.
