Textile Origin: Known for their colourful and bold patterns, Uzbekitsan Ikat textiles were exchanged as political medals from the 12th to 17th century. After the Russian occupation in the late 19th century, ikat production was standardized with patterns and colour usage regulated until Uzbekistan declared their independence in 1991. Since then, Ikat production has been revived as a family industry with a return to traditional patterns and natural dyes. The Uzbekistan ikat represents their cultural identity, and today is used locally for wedding trousseaus.
