Iranian clothing is sold to Iraq, Kuwait, Australia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Russia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Germany, Korea, Japan, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, Venezuela, Ivory Coast, Italy, Turkey, Canada, Qatar, Oman, Nigeria, Pakistan, Spain, Georgia, and Denmark.
