Gold Embroidery

This art flourished in Bukhara in the middle of the 19th century, where talented masters embroidered splendid attire of Emir and his suite. Embroidery in gold was generally performed by men, who usually handed the trade over to their sons. Men's robes, turbans, skullcaps, shalvars (kind of pants) and footwear; women' clothes including gowns, robes - kaltacha, bands worn on the forehead - peshanahand, shawls, high boots and slippers, all of those were the garments embroidered in gold and silver. Ornaments of the palaces interiors (chepraki) as well as horse cloth were abundantly embroidered in gold interspersed with semi-precious stones and small metal domes kubba.
