Qalamkari; Traditional Art of Making Hand-Painted Textile

Qalamkari is a traditional textile art which was born in Isfahan during the Safavid era. Qalamkari artists do magic by using colours, fabric and wood.

People in small workshops, especially in Khorzuq city, weave the cotton textile of Qalamkari. The artists print patterns on the fabrics using stamps made of pear or hawthorn wood smeared with natural, herbal colours.

The Qalamkari textile is then washed and dried before being sent to the shops.

What follows are IRNA’s photos of Qalamkari works and the shops selling them:
