Bukhara's Gold Embroidery Bukhara's Gold Embroidery Samarkand came into history of world culture as a capital of Amir Temur’s empire. The city was surviving difficulties after disintegration of the empire, but could keep a status of the largest center of culture and art crafts. The original Samarkand embroidery excites especial interest. Despite the close neighbourhood of the large centers of embroidery – Bukhara, Nurata and Shahrisabz, which gravitate to general Bukhara school, the Samarkand school has preserved own style, captivating by monumental solutions, laconic colour and dynamic forms.

Symbolical Symbolical Today we have to discover again that in the past the ornament had not only a decorative function, but served as the universal graphic “language”, which differed from the script and was accessible to the wide circles of the population.
