Along with narratives, traditions and rituals, Iran’s ancient history can be traced through its vast array of handicrafts – and not just the fames carpets.. Of the 600 major handicrafts that have been included in UNESCO’s heritage register, nearly 300 of them are Iranian – and 242 of them are produced in Isfahan.
Iran is among the top 10 producers of handicrafts and examples of Iranian handicrafts, ancient and modern, can be found in important museums around the world.
While carpets are the best known of Iranian handicrafts, artisans and designers continue other ancient traditions of crafting decorative and functional items from fabric, wood, metal and clay. And, like Persian carpet designs, their range and variety reflect Iran’s cultural and climatic diversity and the influence of more recent artistic fashions and trends.
