With its rich cultural and historical landscapes, Uzbekistan is the perfect destination for a crafting holiday. The country’s craftsmanship is recognised through 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, making it a must visit for any textile enthusiast. 

A journey along the famous Silk Road promises to be mesmerising; historically a central crossroad for traders, the beautiful ancient cities of Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand boast plenty of sights. Each city has its own focus, with Khiva showing off its history in traditional woodworking, ceramics and fur coat sewing; 2,000-year-old Bukhara is known for stunning gold embroidery; and Samarkand hosts a wonderful collection of textiles in its Fine Art Museum.  

Join our textile experts as they host inspiring workshops and lead you through centuries of arts and crafts, ensuring a truly memorable trip. By the end of your Stitchtopia craft holiday, we’re certain you’ll have a true sense of all this beautiful country has to offer.  

Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Khiva, Bhukara and Samarkand as we pass along the route of the Silk Road.
