one of the most famous items known to foreigners. There are
many places around the world that the Persian carpet is being
used, such as many palaces, museums and etc. Another very
famous handcrafted item is the Pateh of Kerman which is usually
made by kermani women and young girls that use colorful threads
on a wide piece of cloth, which they call “Ariz (meaning “wide”
in Persian)” to make this scarf which is then decorated with
beautiful designs. These women use thin needles to design the
pateh through their own imagination and creativity that reflects
their personality and culture.
Walking through the Bazaar of Kerman, you will notice sounds of
hammers being smashed on copper, this is the noise of making bowls
and dishes that are the main souvenirs of Kerman with more than
6000 years of history that follows this routine.
