TEHRAN – An exhibit of handicrafts, featuring works by female crafters and entrepreneurs, is currently underway in Ardebil, northwestern Iran.

It showcases works by 12 people in the arenas of embossing, drawing, kilim carpet, metalwork, marquetry, leatherwork and woodwork, CHTN reported.

The Khataei Gallery is hosting the five-day exhibit, which will be running through January 18.
