ILAM, Jun. 13 (MNA) – Director general of Ilam Cultural Heritage, Handcrafts and Tourism Organization says the earliest handicraft in this province dates back to 7 thousand years ago.
Abdolmalek Shanbezadeh said the earliest handicraft discovered in Ilam is a simple wicker matt belonging to fifth millennium BC. The matt was discovered on Ali Kosh Hill in Dehloran County.
“Currently, 33 different fields of handicraft are active in the province with 1,000 organized artisans in the business,” he said.
He added that the embossed rug originated from Ilam.
“Embossed rug is a combination of plain rug and knotted rug in which the patterns are more prominent than the background,” he explained.
According to him, Ilam is home to many fields of handicraft including carpet weaving, cloak knitting, traditional dyeing, mosaic tiles, gilding, miniature, felting, pottery and traditional musical instrument making.
Tehran is currently hosting an international exhibition for one week and more than 2,000 artists and handicraft people from all over Iran as well as neighboring countries including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Armenia, Uzbekistan, Syria, Tunisia, Azerbaijan, Turkey and Iraq have come to gather under one roof.
The event kicked off on June 9 and will run through June 15, 2015.
