Calico printing is one of the oldest arts in Iran. Calico is in fact the art of hand printing on fabrics. The antiquity of this art goes back to the period of Shah Abbas Safavi (11th lunar century). At that time, it was the most glorious time and the perfection peak of this art type. At that time, even clothes were designed by calico printing. This type of hand printing didn’t only a have cultural value, but also had special importance in economics.
Most of the time, the fabric which this art takes place on it is cotton. And also sometimes silk, linen, corduroy or canvas.
