Rasuljon's booth at Santa Fe Int'l Folk Art Market-2016

 

The Craft Development Center, in Margilan, Uzbekistan, is headed by internationally-renowned Master Weaver Rasul Mirzaahmedov. He works with eight other ikat masters and more than 40 weavers at the Craft Development Center.

Rasuljon is a fifth-generation ikat master. “I was born into a family of craftsmen,” he says. Rasuljon’s father, Turgunboy, was an Uzbek ikat pioneer. “He was always considering new designs, structures, and coloring techniques,” Rasuljon remembers, “and that inspired me.” 

Ikat weaving is a very time-consuming and complex process: raw silk goes through 37 steps, including many dyeings, to complete a single piece. “Our hands touch up to 4,000 strands of silk during the process,” Rasuljon says. Traditionally, men warp and dye the silk, and women complete the weaving. Rasuljon's work has been exhibited at numerous international exhibitions, including the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market.
