khatam kari is one of the most famous handicrafts in Esfahan.
khatam is a Persian version of marquetry , It is defined as art of decorating the surface of objects with small equilateral triangles made of ivory,metal , bone, wood and brass twisted wire laid side by side that result in a stunning geometrical pattern.Artworks with smaller inlaid pieces are generally more highly valued .
Khatam consists in the production of incrustation patterns generally star shaped with thin sticks of wood (ebony, teak, ziziphus, orange, rose), brass (for golden parts), camel bones (white parts). Ivory, gold or silver can also be used for collection objects. These sticks are assembled in triangular beams, assembled and glued in a strict order to create a geometrical motif such as a six-branch star included in a hexagon.
These triangles are put on the surface of inner, outer or both sides of wooden objects with the thickness of 2 centimeters.
