- And now I want to share my impression of getting to know Uzbek fashion.
In the list of “What to bring”, the first item, of course, was silk robes and suits, because Uzbekistan is famous for the creation of ikat.
Ikat is a pattern that is created using a special technology for dyeing threads, and not printing a finished pattern.
This pattern has even become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
- exclusive silk fabrics are used, which are ordered by the best masters of silk weaving in Margelan.
Much attention is paid to the selection of patterns and color combinations in fabrics.
The fabric itself dictates an eclectic style and loose fit. Incredible patterns are obtained by applying marks for dyeing with special paint on stretched threads. And after that they form a specific pattern.
The intricate ikat pattern is created using a special technology for dyeing threads, and not printing the finished pattern. This time-consuming and painstaking process requires a lot of time, as well as a high level of skill.
Dense silk is very comfortable and light, and I definitely will not find a spectacular pattern and color anywhere in Moscow.
