Oriental Weavers Group is one of the world’s largest carpet, rug and related raw materials producers. Based in Cairo, the group has manufacturing facilities in three countries and distributes its products in more than 130 countries worldwide.

Oriental Weavers was founded in 1979 by industrialist and entrepreneur Mohammed Farid Khamis and has been traded on the Egyptian Exchange since 1997. From a single loom — and building on Egypt’s long textile tradition which dates back to a linen cloth made in Upper Egypt c.5000 BC — Oriental Weavers has emerged as the largest producer of machine-woven carpets in the world and today is the global leader in tufted and jet-printed rugs and carpets.

OW’s vision is to enhance our lifestyle worldwide; tomorrow’s homes will require ever-fashionable and inspired floor coverings with distinctive characters at affordable costs.

OW’s mission is to build a state of the art carpets and rugs company by achieving economies of scale, being aggressively market oriented, being export oriented and internationally competitive, and maximizing the use of local competitive advantages.
