The handicrafts have enjoyed a  tremendous prosperity in the province. The crafts include knife making, carpets, Charog making (a traditional and  ornamental shoe made of leather), Malile works (a type of silverwork to make ornamental  dishware with delicate patterns) just to name a few. These hand works are now the pride and glory of many museums around the world
Zanjan is known for its beautiful handcrafts such as knives, traditional sandals, called Charoogh, and Malileh, a handcraft made with silver wires. Zanjani artists make many things like various decorative dishes and their special covers as well as silver jewelry. In ancient times, Zanjan was known for its stainless and sharp knives. Many villagers today are traditional carpet weavers, perhaps Zanjan's most popular handcraft.
