Since ancient times, Marash in Western Armenia has been known as a thriving center of crafts and arts, where the Armenian presence has always been significant. Thus, sewing, painting, furniture and jewelry are Armenian crafts. Crafts are practiced both in the city and in rural areas. The vast majority of the population of the province is engaged in cattle breeding and agriculture.

In addition to agriculture and cattle breeding, the population of villages is engaged in woodworking. Cutting down trees from the surrounding forests, they make various joinery.

At the beginning of the 20th century, sericulture began to be seen as a profitable business. However, sericulture, like many other crafts, stops with the disappearance of the Armenian element in Marash. The city of Marash was incomparably rich in a variety of crafts.
