Iranian Handicrafts: Zaribafi; Local Art of Southern Iran

Local culture and costumes in Hormozgan province have created a good market for this Iranian handicraft. Local women who do Zaribafi earn a living by creating picturesque designs. After fishing and trade, Zaribafi is the most common art and most important profession in the provincial city of Jask.

Zaribafi is a catch-all term which refers to all local handicrafts done by women in Jask. They also produce different types of local costumes.

This Iranian handicraft includes weaving work where specific and beautiful designs are created on different types of cloth used in making women’s clothing.
