About us | Caravanserai | Art & Handicrafts from all along the Silk Road

About us

Caravanserai was established on March 27th, 2013, as an additional unit to our traveling agency Perzepolis. Throughout our various trips, we were inspired by the works of talented local artists we came across. Craft masters, whose works uniquely reflected their esthetic styles and artistic identity.

We were motivated to share their personal experiences of inherited culture and enduring local craftsmanship. Thus, Caravanserai was initially born to help local Iranian designers and artists reach a global audience in an online platform where their handcrafts could be appreciated.

Currently, Caravanserai exhibits works of 11 designers and producers. You can view and purchase artworks that have their identity and origins tracing back to individual stories of their masters.

Our goal is to cultivate and expand this online community by creating respective links with local artists from all over the world, who look to broaden their reach, and whose works deserve their exclusive stage. Caravanserai aims to become an international exhibition of fine arts and handicrafts you can order from your home.

Our work ethic is grounded upon the principles of fair trade. We aim to offer quality items at reasonable pricing. We do not bargain with our artists as works of art are difficult to value. We moderately guide their pricing strategy to be fair and affordable towards our average customer base.

We do not discriminate between our choice of designers and artists based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or any other criteria other than the individuality of their artworks. We do not work with artists with links to forced or unfair labor.
