Bushehr Handicrafts

Bushehr is known for a variety of handicrafts, the most famous one being the Bushehri Aba. Also because it is a coastal region, Gallafi - or making and repairing dhows by hand - is an age-old tradition that is still being widely practiced in different cities and towns. And last but not least is Gereh Chini – a decorative art form in which frames of wood and panels of glass are set next to each other to create geometrical patterns.
