Wisdom, regularity, mystery and infinity — such associations arise in a person listening to stories about the mysterious East. In addition to the fabulous idea of this region, there is also a real personification of the Far East, expressed in art objects, which can be safely attributed to the magnificent and luxurious carpets made in this wonderful region.

Since ancient times, the main purpose of the oriental carpet has been the insulation of residential premises. Over time, this need practically disappeared, and the carpet was used as part of the decoration of the interior. The carpet can tell you about the wonderful sense of style of the owner of the house, symbolizing wealth and well-being. It is impossible to bypass a worthy thing that has an unusual energy, causing a genuine feeling of delight. There can be no other way, because the exclusive oriental carpet has been made by the hands of craftsmen for more than a year. At the same time, the product absorbs the most powerful energy coming from the needlewomen who work on the carpet, weaving each thread into it with love. Only a few factories for the production of authentic oriental carpets have survived until this day, and even fewer craftsmen who possess the ancient secrets of weaving. Despite this, you can see with your own eyes the creations by visiting a unique production preserved in Samarkand, where the art of carpet making is cherished and passed down from generation to generation. You can see how complicated the process of hand weaving is, and understand what makes up a rather big price for such a product by visiting the Khujum carpet factory in the city of Samarkand, Uzbekistan.

The carpet factory is one of the significant sights of Uzbekistan, which makes it possible to follow the work of skilled craftsmen creating handmade carpets in real time. Going on a tour of the factory, you will be able to track the entire process of making carpets from silk threads, from the moment of unwinding the cocoon of the silkworm to the creation of the last knot. All stages of work are carried out manually with the use of auxiliary, simple devices. Only females work at the machines, bringing a piece of their soul into each small knot, creating a unique work of art. It takes about one year to create one carpet, but this is an average. The specific production time depends on the complexity of the weaving pattern and the size of the product. The number of nodules per square centimetre also plays an important role in the production process. The picturesqueness and value of the carpet directly depends on the accuracy of the knots and the intricacy of the pattern. At the carpet factory, only natural materials are used in production. For example, silk threads are tinted manually, using natural dyes obtained from the pomace of pomegranate peel, green walnut, asparagus leaves. Silk threads dyed in this way retain a shade and juiciness for a long period, eventually acquiring a kind of golden colour.

The drawings used in the creation of carpets are quite diverse and are implemented with the use of national ornaments in various versions, which gives the products uniqueness, while at the same time emphasizing belonging to the Asian direction of carpet weaving. The carpet pattern, as in ancient times, conveys specific information that an initiated person reads with ease, as if looking through a page in a book.
