Yazd to highlight traditional floor coverings

November 10, 2018

TEHRAN – A sales exhibition of traditional floor coverings will be running in the UNESCO-registered historical city of Yazd form November 13 to 17.

Titled “The 2nd Specialized Exhibition of Zilou and Traditional Mats”, the event will be held concurrent with a national crafts exhibit at Yazd Permanent International Fairground, ILNA reported.

Iran’s Cultural Heritage Handicrafts and Tourism Organization has nominated Meybod, a city in Yazd province, for possibly becoming a world city of “Zilou” (traditional hand woven floor-covering).

Several Iranian cities including Isfahan and Tabriz enjoy such a privilege granted by the World Crafts Council.
