Khiva Silk Carpet Workshop information
Apprentice carpet makers hand-weave silk rugs patterned after Khiva-style majolica tiles, doors and miniature paintings. There’s lots of natural-dyed silk hanging around and you can watch women work the looms. During the high season, there's usually an English-speaking guide on hand to give you an introduction to the processes used.
