Carpet industry

In Khorezm, carpet weaving is one of the most important branches of textile industry for many years. Archaeological findings in our area confirm that carpets dating to 1,000 BC were discovered.

It was confirmed that the first millennium carpets were found.

The carpets are mainly made of plant (cotton, linen, jute) and wool (sheep, camels) and silk. Carpeting is made of fabric, embroidery and printing methods. The carpets are cleaned and wiped out, and the wool is scrubbed. The yarns are painted in different natural colors. Dyes are made of plants. Therefore, carpets will not change color and will not lose their quality.

The carpets were originally made of handmade, then made on special machines. According to the method of weaving is divided into feathers and non-fertile species.

Handmade carpets are more demanding. It takes about 20-25 days to produce a carpet weave. Patented carpets are small beaked (3-7mm) and long beak (8-17mm).

The carpet weaving should cover 600 to 1030 gardens per square meter.

The carpets are of three sizes: small (up to 3 sq. m), average (from 3 sq. m to 6 sq. m) and large (over 6 sq. m).

The Yoqubboy Khodja Madrassah, located in Ichonkala state-run museums, has an old silk carpet-maker. This  process  is described in the picture.
