Holiday Overview

Uzbekistan is on many a textile lover’s bucket list. Situated in the centre of Asia and on the Silk Road, one of the world’s most important historical trading routes linking China to the Mediterranean, Uzbekistan offers a smorgasbord of culture and colour and a fascinating textile history.  On this tour, we’ll see examples of local craftsmanship in embroidery, ikat fabrics, carpets and silks and enjoy an embroidery workshop with a local expert as well as three hand-stitching workshops with our accompanying expert. There’ll be plenty of opportunity for some retail therapy too, as we enjoy the sights, sounds and aromas of the markets and bazaars throughout our journey.
