Isfahan has seen many events and eras during its time. Many houses and buildings are saving these spirits until their time runs out. Kianpour's historic house in Iran is among the few that survived many years and now is accepting guests to show the art history of Iran and Isfahan to all the world. Let check some out together.



Engraving is the decoration and carving of patterns on metal objects, especially copper, gold, silver, brass, or in other words, the creation of lines and patterns by the pen with a hammer blow on metal objects. This art has a long history and reflects the culture and civilization of the Iranian people. Nowadays, for first engraving, the inside or under the container or tray is filled with a solution of bitumen and plaster to reduce the noise of the pen and also to prevent the container from piercing during work. Then draw the desired role on the dish and beat it with a suitable pen. After creating the roles, the bitumen is separated and charcoal pollen is poured on the grooves and the container is covered with black polishing oil.

Silver Making

Silver making is one of the common handicrafts in Isfahan. Workshops, where silver making is done, do other work such as engraving on silver, copper, and brass products. Types of products made by silversmiths are tea service, vases, candlesticks, and multi-fabric services.

Mesh Art

Mesh art has a long history. Ever since early humans moved from caves to deserts and built four walls of stone for themselves, they have installed a window made of animal skin, wood, leaves, or perforated stone to illuminate the inside of the hut. In this way, while preventing the cold from entering, they provided some light for the hut. Gradually, these holes became art forms. Today, lattice works on doors, pulpits, imams, mosques, metal utensils, and pottery, which the artist has skillfully meshed, metal (aluminum, copper, gold, silver), wood (plywood), bone Animals (ivory, camel bones, horse bones), leather, plastic stones, iolite, Formica, chipboard, etc. can be seen.


Binding is the act of connecting all the pages of a book and placing them in a cover and protector called a cover, which can be done by hand or by machine. Of course, in the past, this work was mostly done by tasteful artists, and each artist created works of art with taste and talent, examples of which are now available in museums.
The oldest copies of the cover were from the Bible, which dates back to six centuries AD, written in Egypt and the paper is made of papyrus. Which was covered with leather and leather was used to close it. Volumes can be divided into different types according to the type of construction, each of which has been created over time due to the development of the art of covering.
1- Fuel covers
2- Multiplication volumes
3- Lucky covers

Tile Making

Tile making is one of the main handicrafts of Isfahan. In these products, the characteristics of old designs and patterns are well preserved and even today they have many demands. Another art that is done using tiles in this province is mosaic tiles, which are cutting and crushing tiles and putting them together.
Because the patterns on the tiles are so complex, tile makers cannot draw them mentally, so craftsmen recommend the designs to designers. After the desired design is prepared, the craftsmen apply it to the tile. For this purpose, the desired design is placed on a simple tile that has already been prepared, and then a needle is inserted on the design lines, and thus the map lines remain in the place of the needle, which is formed by pouring charcoal dust on the created holes. And the desired design is transferred to the tile. After that, the lines are painted according to taste and placed in the oven for cooking. From now on, the product will be ready to be marketed.
