I don't know what I had expected - an ordinary scarf printed on silk? For the price and size it certainly would have been reasonable. But what I touched when I opened the folded paper was a spiritual experience which connected with ages of tradition - I could feel the weaver's hand in the intricate pattern of the ikat scarf. There are no words to describe the art until you fingers have run across the cloth, and you've watched the light play with the colors like a woven rainbow. The artist is truly one of a kind. -- Thank you a thousand times!

Dear Nilufar, The scarves arrived and they are a knockout. My wife was particularly pleased with the replacement scarf. All the best, Sebastian from Zagreb, Croatia

My dining chairs were reupholstered using your Uzbek ikat fabric on the inside and outside backs. I'm very pleased with the results.

Dear Nilifar, I wonder if there is anything on this site that can't capture the heart! Koshib Omonov's wonderful pins and barrettes are truly unique. When I purchased the first barrette, I had decided it would be a gift for a friend, but the triple hold mechanism - so easy to use - made it possible for the clasp to hold my hair at its thickest, or a whisp pulled back to the side. And the design! So delicate, intricate, magical - I can't say enough! The pins are a perfect match to the beauty of the barrettes, which is saying a great deal! A special note - Mr. Omonov even signed his work in tiny bronze lettering on the back - making the pieces even more personal! Thank you and your talented friends so very much! Uzbek art deserves to be known to the world, and you're making that possible! These are heirloom pieces, destined to be passed down through the generations.

Hello Nilufar: I received my scarf last Thursday and cannot begin to tell you how much I love it! It is beautiful and I've already gotten several compliments on it as well. I will definitely let my friends know about your site and will be sure to order more from you in the future. Thank you very much for a great shopping experience. Best regards, Jennifer

The package arrived today (4/12/08) -- I did have to sign for it but luckily I was home. The scarf is beautiful and looks exactly like the photo on your website. Thanks very much!

I was envious of the pillows in all the interior decorating magazines, and was disappointed to see that they were available through designers only. Imagine my joy when I found your website! I am sewing my own pillows out of the fabrics I received from you. I just finished new pillows for the bedroom and now will start on the living room. P.S. Also, your packaging is very "old world", please do not change it! I felt connected to a place in a different world when opening your package.

Dear Nilufar, I've been very busy lately, so I couldn't write when it first arrived, but I wanted to take the time to thank you for the lovely "green comb" scarf. I have become a huge fan of Uzbek ikat thanks to your site, gave the first one as a gift to my mother, who loved it, have recommended the site to a textile-loving friend, and am planning to order lots more from you when I get back to the UK in October! By the way, I'm curious as to what the original Uzbek name for ikat is - I thought ikat was an Indonesian word? And lucky for us, it's a huge fashion trend at the moment! best wishes, [Nilufar's response to a question part:] Uzbek word for ikat is abr (originally Persian word meaning “a cloud“). However, an Indonesian term ikat is also widely used these days.
