Export of artistic hand-made Iranian goods to foreign countries has swelled up to about $106 million during first eight months of ongoing Iranian year beginning from March 21. According to an official, this export surge reveals an increased realization and appreciation for Iranian handcrafts across the world.

Mr. Ahmad Balan, the official from Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization, informed that around 5.2 million artisans are engaged in about 250 different sub-segments of handicraft industry and which has experienced a six-fold growth in exports from March to November, against the same period last year.

Iranian Government intends to increase handicraft industry's share of gross domestic product to 6 percent from 3 percent, said the official. Easy accessibility to splendid man-made Iranian craft items is attracting buyers across the world as well as the increasing demand from Europe and US collectors is leading to soar in exports, he added.

Handicrafts goods like Inlay, kilim and pendants have been witnessing bigger demands from overseas markets since past few years.
