Tehran, YJC. A number of native Iranian arts are less known by the country’s people.

There are many handicrafts which people do not usually get acquainted with and are therefore considered to be extinguishing arts. Motakazin is an Iranian craft on fabrics which is little known among people and which is one of the arts that are predicted to die with their current masters.

The handicraft belongs to a village with the same name in Mazandaran. Cloth is sewn with white cotton warp and a background and additional woofs that create patterns.

Ashk-doozi is another Iranian handicraft which consists of sewing tear-like tear pearls onto strong fabric such as broadcloth, velvet, or satin.

In South Khorasan there is another form of handicraft which consists of threading peganum harmala seed capsules with colorful threads and adding them along with tassels on cardboard, straw mat, or cloth. The art is called Espand-bafi.

In Yazd a cloth is woven 75 to 90 cm long and 25 cm wide with striped and Moiré patterns which is used to make school dress or local costume. They call the handicraft Armak-bafi.

Bokhara-doozi is to be found in Isfahan. It consists of sewing the cloth all over with different material from bear thread to sequins and the like.
