Over 700 crafters in Yazd engage in traditional ornamentation

January 17, 2019

TEHRAN – Over 700 artisans are currently working as goldsmiths, crafting traditional ornamentation in Yazd province, central Iran.

Annually, large volumes of gold jewelry are exported from Yazd to other provinces and even abroad, CHTN quoted a local official as saying on Tuesday.

There are tens of goldsmith workshops in the province, which is a top tourist destination.

With its winding lanes, forest of badgirs (wind catchers), mud-brick houses, atmospheric alleyways and centuries of history, Yazd is a delightful place to stay, referred to as a ‘don't miss’ destination by almost all travel associates in the region.
