NAGHSH TANDIS ARYA (Private Joint Stock Company) is the first and exclusive manufacturer of play dough and modeling clay in Iran. The company also manufactures oil pastel & crayon, poster Colour (gouache), water color, finger paint, face paint, wood pencil, school geometry tools, educational sets & accessories and a variety of notebooks. Arya - a family company - was established in 1961 by Mr.Abdolsamad Barkhoda (peace be upon his soul) with the manufacturing of its first product "Modeling Clay". Unfortunately at that time, people were not as familiar as they are today with the use of play dough and this company’s other products for educational purposes. But fortunately, as time went by, social culture was enriched and there was an increasing demand by children and youth for our products, in the many fields of entertainment, recreational and artistic creativeness. Since its establishment, this company has designed and created different methods of presenting and introducing its products and has emphasised the importance of their usage for developmental purposes in children through cultural, educational & entertainment centers and also through media such as TV and the press; and has increased the variety of products which have been remarkably successful thus far. The company’s products have maintained their excellent quality and due to high demand there has been a significant increase in the manufacturing of many of our different products in the past decade, such as poster color, oil pastels, water color, finger paint, face paint and a variety of notebooks. Presently, not only does the company supports the entire country's demand for its products (Iran), but our products are also exported to many countries in the Middle East and this signifies the fact that the Arya Company, due to the quality of its certified products, is very well able to export to markets worldwide.
