Name of Persian Handicraft : Zardozi or Zar-douzi (Persian: زردوزی)

Description: Zardozi is one of the most important elements of Persian cultural signs and Handicrafts. It is known around the country by names such as zar-douzi (Persian: زردوزی‎), kam-douzi (Persian: کم‌دوزی‎), gol-douzi (Persian: گل‌دوزی‎) and kaman-douzi (Persian: کمان‌دوزی‎). Nowadays it is more popular in Hormozgan, especially in Bandar-e Lenge, Bandar-e Abbas, and Minab.[1]

Persian zardozi is of three kinds:

Some people completely sew the basic fabric with Bakhie (Persian: بخیه‎) in order to produce novel patterns and colors, such as the Baloch's Souzan-douzi (Persian: سوزن‌دوزی‎), Rasht's Qollab-douzi (Persian: قلاب‌دوزی‎) and Kerman's Pate-douzi (Persian: پَته‌دوزی‎).
Some sew with less density of work on the original fabric. They cross the strings throughout the woof of the fabric and sew them to each other to form a colorfully patterned lattice, such as sekke-douzi (Persian: سکّه‌دوزی‎) or qollab-douzi (Persian: قلاب‌دوزی‎) in Isfahan.
A third way is to sew a variety of patterns on the original fabric with gold and silver strings, such as Dah-Yek-Douzi (Persian: ده‌يک‌دوزی‎) (1 of 10 sewing which today is demode), Naqade-douzi (Persian: نقده‌دوزی‎), Tafte-douzi (Persian: تافته‌دوزی‎), Kous-douzi (Persian: خوس‌دوزی‎) Zari-douzi (Persian: زر‌دوزی‎) or Golabatoun-douzi (Persian: گلابتون‌دوزی‎).[1]
