An Iranian village and two cities are on the list of the World Crafts Council - Asia Pacific Region (WCC-APR) as world craft hubs. 

According to the World Handicraft Council, Abadeh in southern Fars province and Meybod in central Yazd province are respectively named world crafts cities for woodcarving and Zilou (traditional hand-woven floor-covering).

The village of Khorashad in eastern South Khorasan province also shares the same privilege for the craft Toebafi (traditional hand-woven fabrics).

Over the past couple of years, the WCC presented the same tags to the cities Tabriz for carpet, Isfahan for creative handicrafts, Mashhad for gemstones, Lalejin in Hamadan province for pottery, Marivan in Kordestan province for Kalash-bafi (Giveh), Sirjan in Kerman province for Kilim weaving, and Kalpouregan in Sistan and Balouchestan province for its 7000-year-old pottery.
