This gives the visiting public the opportunity to pick theirown personal favorites. The entry that wins the most votes will then be awarded a special trophy at the end of the show. This year the winner is Zollanvari with his carpet "Glow".

"What makes the Carpet Design Awards so special is the enormous variety of designs and production techniques that are on display at DOMOTEX."
