Maani Petgar


30 minutes

Farsi with English subtitles

Ms. Eshrat Badr had spent most of her life in Shiraz, one of Iran's most ancient cities. Nearly 22 years ago, however, she began traveling to various parts of Iran in order to study the different patterns of traditional Iranian women's costumes throughout her country. After studying the styles and characteristics from 98 different regions, Ms. Badr returned to Shiraz to begin working on her own designs.

While influenced by the colors, history and culture of Shiraz, her patterns also revive the colorful traditions of all parts of Iran in the context of contemporary society.
