Silk Carpets of Uzbekistan

by Anonymous on 9/27/2004

This site says that ”Carpet weaving, closely connected to the herding of sheep, has long existed in the districts of Andijan, Samarkand, Kashkadarya, Surkhandarya, Bukhara and the Lower Amudarya, where it had the specific features of women’s cottage industry. Carpet makers were very skilful in various weaving and knotting techniques.
The carpets of Uzbekistan are presented most completely in the Arts Museum of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the State Museum of National History of Uzbekistan in Tashkent and the Museum of History and Culture of Uzbekistan in Samarkand, and a considerable number may also be seen in the collections of the central museums of Moscow and St. Petersburg.”
