East Azarbaijan Province


Since the twentieth century, the local dress of Azerbaijan has lost its popularity in the cities and has taken on a state of modernity, but generally in nomadic and rural areas along with the areas inhabited by Azerbaijanis, it has retained its former function.


Azerbaijan region is one of the most strategic and important regions of the country due to its special geographical location. East Azerbaijan province is one of the most important and most populated provinces of Iran, which is located in the northwest corner of the country. The area of this province is 45491 square kilometers, which covers about 2.8% of the total area of the country. In terms of natural location, this province is located at the confluence of Alborz and Zagros mountains; in other words, in the Alborz and Azerbaijan zones in the northwest corner of the plateau of Iran. In general, East Azerbaijan is a mountainous region with about 40% of its surface covered by mountains.
