Hand-loomed and hand-dyed, our authentic Uzbek Ikat velvet fabric revives the original Uzbek Ikats, famed during the Great Silk Road era for their unique designs, diverse patterns, and vibrant colors. Using traditional weaving and dyeing techniques, our fabrics feature the stunning ancient designs of Bukhara, Samarkand, and Khiva, crafted with 100% natural fibers and dyes.

These magnificent handmade Uzbek Ikat velvet fabrics are celebrated for their bright and colorful patterns, unique designs, and smooth textures, all attributed to high-quality natural silks and velvets. As a national treasure of Central Asia, these fabrics are globally recognized for their exceptional qualities. Uzbek Ikats and velvets are frequently showcased at Fashion Weeks in New York, Paris, and Milan, featured by world-renowned designers. Vintage Ikat fabrics are also prized by prominent museums and private collectors.

The hand-dyeing and hand-weaving process of Ikat fabrics is labor-intensive, adhering to the highest standards of craftsmanship. It can take a week of meticulous work to produce just a single piece.

Hand weaving has been a tradition in Uzbekistan since ancient times, predating the Great Silk Road that introduced these magnificent fabrics to Europe and later America. These rare fabrics have always been crafted by hand in small batches, with artistic traditions passed down through generations. The centuries-old techniques and designs continue to thrive in modern Uzbekistan. Our Uzbek Ikats remain true to their origins, as brilliant and refreshing today as they were centuries ago.

These gorgeous Ikat fabrics are a cultural landmark of Uzbekistan and Central Asia, acclaimed for their diverse designs. The rich traditional Ikat patterns start with hand-dyeing the threads. When placed on the hand loom, the threads form an organized design under the skilled hands of an artisan, inspired by the creative heritage of ancient Bukhara, Samarkand, and Khiva. This technique enables a vast array of vibrant designs, featuring dynamic combinations of colors, shapes, and patterns to suit any taste and occasion.
