UzbekAlive 

Welcome to UzbekAlive, a website dedicated to promotion of artisanal textile heritage of Uzbekistan.

We also feature some eclectic finds such as hand embroidered suzani and hand painted jewelry boxes which is basically taking gorgeous Islamic mosaics and murals and transforming them into a décor item.
