Welcome to UzbekAlive, a website dedicated to promotion of artisanal textile heritage of Uzbekistan. Our focus is on Uzbek ikats and ikat related products such as ikat quilts, ikat pillow covers, silk ikat scarves and ikat porcelain bowls. Ikat is a term for a fabric, which is hand-dyed using a resist dying method and woven using the century’s old traditions. The ikat making skills passed for generations from a father to a son. Each inch of the fabric is a mix of a humble work and a resulting tactile luxury. 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.
