Central Asia is justifiably famous for its textiles, which include rugs and tribal trappings, elaborate embroideries and colorful ikats. Textile production spans the extremes of rich, urban court centers to the open, nomadic steppes, and bridges Europe and China. Cultural influences have migrated along the trade routes across this region for millennia. We have lived on the edge of this region, and been exposed to and able to collect a sampling of its textile wealth. Here we offer a small portion of our collection.
