Four handicrafts of North Khorasan Province, including Kurdish tablecloth, charouq, chadorshab and gemstone necklace, have received the UNESCO Seal of Excellence, said the director general of the provincial cultural heritage, handicrafts and tourism department.

Chadorshab is a Persian term referring to something like a sheet on a bed and charouq is a traditional Iranian footwear that wraps around the feet.

Referring to the existence of 61 handicrafts of North Khorasan Province, Habib Yazdanpanah said on Saturday that 51 of them have a national brand name.

Yazdanpanah said that handicrafts represent the identity and culture of the peoples of each region.

"The culture and diversity of the ethnicity of the province are evident in creating the handicrafts of the province."

“UNESCO Seal of Excellence for Handicrafts plays an important role in facilitating our access to international markets. This, in turn, leads to the increase of handicrafts in the province and the creation of more jobs.”

The program of UNESCO Seal of Excellence for Handicrafts was originally piloted in 2000-2003 for Southeast Asian Nations by UNESCO and the ASEAN Handicraft Promotion and Development Association (AHPADA).

The program has successfully helped raise the quality of handicrafts. Iran has participated in this program since 2007.
