Iranian artisans to show skills at Japan exhibit

January 17, 2018

TEHRAN – A group of 11 Iranian artisans will attend the ‘second week’ of the 85th Tokyo International Gift Show, which will be held at the Tokyo Big Sight from February 7 to 9.

“In case Iranian craftspeople are interested in entering Japan’s market, this exhibition is a way to do so. However, the products must be able to compete with foreign counterparts in terms of quality,” Mehr quoted Seyyed Abbasali Emamiyeh, Iran’s tourism information envoy to Japan, as saying on Wednesday.

It is the first time that Iran participates in the event, which comprises several sections including toys, stationery, and fashion with the motto of ‘Good Design for Happy Life’.

The exhibit’s ‘first week’ will be held from January 31 to February 3 in Tokyo Big Sight, the city’s international exhibition center.

Dozens of high-quality Iranian handicrafts have been honored with the UNESCO Seal of Excellence over the past couple of years.
