Mashhad World City of Precious Stones Festival due

Mashhad World City of Precious Stones Festival will be held in the holy city on August 9 attended by Chairman of World Crafts Council Asia-Pacific Region Ghada Hijjawi-Qaddumi.

Following the designation of Mashhad and Lalejin as the global cities of gemstones and pottery respectively in 2016 by the World Crafts Council, two festivals will be organized in the Iranian cities correspondingly on Aug. 9 and Aug. 13 to mark the event, IRNA reported.

Head of Iran Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization Masoud Soltanifar and his deputy, Bahman Namvar-Motlaq, as well as jurors from Australia and Oman are to attend both festivals.

The designations by the World Crafts Council will provide a valuable opportunity for promoting activities pertaining to precious and semi-precious stones and pottery in the cities. It will also help upgrade Iran's global status in the field of handicrafts.
