Name of Persian Handicraft :Galesh (Persian: گالش )

A galesh (گالش) is a traditional footwear of Iran.

Unlike most galoshes, the "galesh" are always handwoven and with specific fabrics.

It is what people in Persia used to wear before the proliferation of the modern shoe, especially in the provinces of northern Iran.

Galesh are still made today, but under the guise of handicrafts and cultural produce.

Availability: in the north of Iran.
