Nepal Carpet Manufacturers and Exporters' Association was established in 2018 A.D. as an umbrella organization of entire Nepalese carpet industries. Since the time of its establishment the association has been continuously executing its tasks for the betterment and development of Nepalese Carpet Industry and its workers.

Prior to the establishment of Nepal Carpet Manufacturers and Exporters' Association, there existed two associations namely CCIAN "Central Carpet Industry Association Nepal"(Estd.1990 A.D.) and NCEA "Nepal Carpet Exporters Association"(Estd.2002 A.D.). Both of those associations were established with the aims and objectives of Nepalese carpet industry's Development, but couldn't execute their tasks as intended. Consequently, the idea of Nepal Carpet Manufacturers and Exporters' Association's establishment emerged. During the existence of prior two associations Nepalese carpet entrepreneurs had different concept as manufacturers and exporters. The establishment of NCMEA has transformed two different concepts as single and common concept. Now the establishment has become very fruitful and effective to execute different tasks on behalf of Nepalese carpet industry.

NCMEA as a sole umbrella organization of Nepalese carpet industry is executing various tasks for the protection promotion, development and expansion. Some of the tasks the association regularly executes are,

  • Lobbying with the Nepal government in all the matters and issues related with carpet industry.
  • Coordinate with the third parties who work directly and indirectly for the Nepalese carpet industry.
  • Coordinating and cooperating with the similar international organizations working for the hand knotted carpets.
  • Generating skilled manpower for the sustainability of Nepalese Hand knotted carpet industry.
  • Developing new mechanisms for overall betterment and welfare of the Nepalese Hand Knotted Carpet industry and its workers.
  • Researches and Developmental tasks are being run to explore and identify various new natural raw materials for the introduction of new products in Nepalese hand knotted carpets.
  • Development process like SEZ (Safe Economic Zone) and research in production cost reduction are in the process
  • Mechanism development for Nepalese carpet industry workers betterment and upliftment.

Hence, the sole umbrella organization of Nepalese Hand Knotted carpet, NCMEA (Nepal Carpet Manufacturers and Exporters Association) is actively performing as a multitasking organization for Nepalese carpet industry and its entire workers.
