Uzbek Printed Cloth
Making printed cloth was very popular among the peoples who inhabited the region of present Uzbekistan. Printed table-cloths, curtains, bed-spreads, shawls, high-quality cloth for women's garments, various coverlets (including horse-cloth), and even funeral cerements and other piece and metrical printed articles performed a utilitarian function and served as a daily-round ornament.
Bukhara and adjacent villages were famed for making things of this kind. Beautiful articles were also made in Urgut, Shakhrisabz, Samarkand, Katta-Kurgan, Ferghana and Tashkent.
