Carpet weaving museum

Carpet weaving museum

Uzbekistan National Revival Democratic Party proposed to create a carpet weaving museum in the country.
Such a museum, where samples of carpet weaving schools of Khiva, Bukhara, Andijan, Urgut, Nurabad, Karshi and other regions will be presented may contribute to preserving and widely promoting the national cultural heritage and tourism development in Uzbekistan.
Carpet weaving has been developed in Uzbekistan since ancient times. Currently, this kind of handicraft is still widespread in many regions of our country. There are carpet weaving in the Fergana Valley, Samarkand, Kashkadarya, Surkhandarya, Bukhara and Khorezm regions and in Karakalpakstan.
A classic Uzbek carpet is a carpet woven on a narrow-lawn machine, in separate strips, which are then sewn together into a single cloth, decorated by signs and symbols associated with the worldview of the ancient inhabitants of the Central Asia. The most archaic type of Uzbek carpet is julkhirs, a carpet with a long lint. But the best and most elegant products in color and decor are lint-free. These are kokhma, terme, gajari, takir, sumakh, besh-kashta, embroidered with enli-gilam and kiz-gilam.
