TRADITIONAL UZBEK COSTUME ON MATERIALS OF MUSEUM AND PRIVATE COLLECTIONS OF UZBEKISTAN (PART 1)
The sharply continental climate of Uzbekistan with strong winds and cold winters in the mountains and hot and dry summers on the plains, the combination of sedentary and nomadic lifestyles led to the development of specific types of clothing worn by different groups of the population, more comfortable for a particular environment. The volume Traditional Uzbek Costume on Materials of Museum and Private Collections of Uzbekistan, on the basis of historical data (written sources, wall paintings, sculptures, miniatures and photographic documents) and preserved clothing examples, presents the richest heritage of the peoples of Uzbekistan in the field of traditional costume. Part one is dedicated to men's and women's costumes in Bukhara, Samarkand, Tashkent and the cities of the Fergana Valley. Here you can see the outer clothing and underwear, belts, shoes, hats, as well as jewelry produced in these centers and stored in various national museum and private collections. For the first time, the local originality of local attire can be so visibly imagined.
