Giveh is made up of two parts: sole and upper. The sole is usually rubber or leather the upper is woven thread. Before the arrival of rubber industry to the area Giveh-makers would use a kind of wild-bull leather to make giveh and the upper was of wool or cotton thread. Most rich people would wear them. With the arrival of rubber industry lower class people use rubber in the sole of their shoes. One famous kind of Giveh is Horami klash. The giweh-makers of Horaman make the sole of giveh from old rags pressed firmly together and sewn with catgut. This kind of Giweh is quite different from those of Kermanshah and Harsin.
