A great example of Uzbek embroidery.

The design work is often bold both in decoration and colour choice.

The region previously was part of Soviet Central Asia.

As such, it has always been a crossroads of both culture and trade.

We see influences from as India, China, Iran and the nomads of Eurasia.

This melting pot of ideas and cultures generates a totally unique result.

We like the red and green tones, so christmassy.

Have a great weekend y'all!
