Silk is one of the oldest natural fibres known to mankind. It is revered for not just it's luxurious shine and softness but also for its strength.
Demand for this beautiful fabric eventually created the lucrative trade route now known as the Silk Road.

Magic carpets of Bukhara, made with natural dies: onion skin (yellows and orange), indigo (all shades of blue), pomagranate (reds and purples) and various plants (green). They were used as thermic insulation in nomadic yurts in a land where it gets as cold as minus degree celsius and as hot as 60C. 1-4 are fine silks carpets, silk on silk 320 knots per sq cm. They are extremely resistant and if you cannot wash them in the snow as the locals did they can be washed with shampoo and a hard brush; wine or fruit stains are removed with lemon and salt.
The finest patterns with animals are pre-islamic from the zoroastrian era as the muslims forbade the representation of animals. No 5-6 are baby camel wool shaven from the animal’s softest part, under the neck. The last design is attributed to the persian poet Omar Khayyam, who lived in Samarkand. #silkroad#bukhara#bukharacarpets#boukhara#finecrafts#centralasia#carpets#orientalrugs#uzbekistan#uzbekistan#adventuretime#adventuretravel#omegaforums#watchfam
