Series: Iranian Handicraft and Art – Khatamkari

Many objects can be decorated in this fashion, such as jewelry/decorative boxes, chessboards, pipes, desks, frames or some musical instruments.

Khatam can also be used in Persian miniatures, making it a more attractive work of art.

Based on techniques imported from China and improved by Persian know-how, this craft has existed for more than 700 years and is still practiced in Shiraz and Isfahan.
