Margilan Crafts Development Centre, safeguarding of the atlas and adras making traditional technologies

Language: Uzbek, subtitles Eng
Available in:»English

Historically, Margilan was the centre for making atlas and adras – vivid and fine traditional fabrics. Due to the acute need to revive and safeguard traditions at risk of disappearing, the local community launched the Crafts Development Centre in 2007. The Centre safeguards, develops and promotes Uzbek traditional atlas and adras making through training sessions, exhibitions and craft fairs, festivals, and the publication of safeguarding materials and manuals. Its success stems from its focus on partnership spirit and active community involvement.
