Carpets in Bukhara

For carpets, you couldn’t ask for a better shopping atmosphere than at the silk-weaving centre in this cavernous late-16th-century building, located near Taki-Telpak Furushon Bazaar (a tim was a general market). Vendors will openly inform you on what’s handmade and what’s machine-made, and if you get overwhelmed there's an on-site cafe.
