In this study, using a system of simultaneous equations, and seemingly unrelated regression to examine the factors affecting the demand for carpet Brrzh Iran, It also examines the comparative advantage of Iran's Carpet has been paid during the period. The data from different organizations including statistic center of Iran, Plan and Budget Organization of Iran Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization of Iran, Islamic Republic of Iran Customs, Export Promotion Center of Iran, the World Bank's Global Development and Statistics for the period 1351 to 1391 have been obtained.

Means the increase in carpet export prices in the three countries reduced the demand for these goods. The price elasticity of demand in each country is negative or larger than one this implies that with the growth of Iran's Carpet Export prices, reduced export demand. By acquiring the RSCA, the comparative advantage of Iran's Carpet Export evaluated, according to estimates, the numerical value of this index is positive in all years and its almost one (Highest index) and the rating reflects the country having a comparative advantage in the export of carpets and in the field
