Uzbekistan

Be inspired by the beauty of Uzbekistan

Uzbekistan’s rich cultural and historical landscape provides a perfect destination for your holiday. Uzbekistan’s local craftsmanship is recognized in the wonderful silk spinning, ornamental embroidery, wool carpet weaving, skull caps and jewellery that masters have practiced with knowledge passed from generation to generation. Its strong knitting traditions and textile history demonstrate the country’s blend of cultures that make it a must visit for any textile enthusiast.
 
Uzbekistan provides a mesmerizing journey along the famous Silk Road which historically was a central crossroad for traders, and it boasts sights such as the beautiful ancient cities of Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand. Each city has its own focus; Khiva shows off its history in traditional woodworking, ceramics and fur coat sewing whilst the 2,000-year-old city Bukhara is known for stunning gold embroidery and Samarkand hosts a wonderful collection of textiles in its Fine Art Museum.
