The head of Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization (ICHHTO), Mr. Esfandiyar Rahim Mashaei, announced that handicraft shops will be set up at 50 important locations across the world.

In a meeting, held on the occasion of World Handicrafts Day, he said that Iranian handicrafts have the potential to be displayed in both the markets, domestic as well as international.

This potential can be tapped by implementing this plan, said Mr. Mashaei, adding that the glory of Iranian handicraft can be ensured in the world by inserting value in the works of the artists as well as by supporting them by making more investments.

Further he said that handicrafts and traditional arts, which are manifested in Iranians' lives throughout the history, are an important part of Iranian identity. The official, noted that handicrafts and traditional arts can create several jobs.

He also emphasized that it is an extensive artistic, scientific and technical spectrum in all countries, but it has a much loftier status in Iran.

As there is not any advanced mode of operation right from the production to the supply of handicrafts, this sector experiences a string of problems, while the absence of mass production is the main predicament of this sector, which can be resolved by giving government support to artists, added Mr. Mashaei.

He cited the set up of handicraft shops and exhibitions across the world as a good move for reviving and expanding handicrafts. Government is providing a dynamic support for handicraft artists and ICHHTO intends to guarantee a good future for people engaged in this sector, informed Mr. Mashaei.
