But contrary to the growth that was expected due to economic prosperity and employment and income for carpet weavers, these developments have different effects on carpet weaving in this region and as a result of the economic and social status of women of weaver of Sultanabad. This paper is descriptive -Analysis has been looking for influences and finally it is concluded that these social and economic developments have led to the lack of realization of the economic and social rights of the women of weaver in this region and the degradation of the social status of the carpentry industry, which has continued more or less so far.
