Problem Definition: From the distant past and in accordance with traditional teachings, it seems that the evaluation of handicrafts, especially hand-woven carpets, has been mainly based on the characteristics of the weaving method and its quality. Appearance and beauty features, as well as various technical features found in the hand-woven carpets, have made them a work of art that requires more appropriate criteria and structures than common traditions for evaluation. It seems that many traditional assessment experts put more emphasis on criteria such as density and raw materials. Therefore, this research seeks to answer the question: "What are the characteristics and criteria of qualitative and quantitative evaluation of hand-woven carpets?
Objective: This study aims to explain the values of qualitative and quantitative criteria of handicrafts and to provide a suitable structure in order to prioritize qualitative (visual) values and quantitative priorities that will be measured in economic and commercial evaluations.
Research Method: This article is a qualitative research and introduces a newer and more appropriate structure for teaching the evaluation of handicrafts based on scientific and applied analyses and arguments, and is based on library studies, interviews and written information analyses.
Results: The results of research discussions indicate the importance and priority of the place of quality characteristics and criteria (color, design and motif) in evaluating handicrafts. Quantitative characteristics and criteria, such as weaving techniques and size, are also considered less important in the classification method of evaluating priorities, unlike the traditional methods of evaluating handicrafts.
