Supplementing other kinds of architectural and decorative arts such as ganch (gypsum) and wood-carving, embroidered articles are widely utilized to adorn dwellings and small household articles. Embroidery was practiced on a large scale on everyday and holiday dress. In the 19th century Bukhara, Nurata, Shakhrisabz, Samarkand, Jizak, Tashkent, Pskent and Ferghana were major centers of embroidery. It is worth mentioning is that embroidery was exclusively women's art.

Uzbek Fabrics

The most attractive thing in Uzbek fabrics is the beauty of their color and the pure dyes which are applied in delicate combinations. The coloring is driven to the utmost stress, either resorting to sharp contrasts or delicate harmony. The harmony of colors of the Uzbek national fabrics implicates the gold of sands, the green of valleys, the blue of lakes, the southern sunset, the blossoming of peach and apricot orchards in Uzbekistan.
