HOW TO BECOME A FRIEND OF THE WORLD SOCIETY?

What distinguishes the traditional costume of Surkhandarya?

Surkhandarya clothes of the past centuries, as evidenced in artworks, were similar to the clothes of other Central Asian tribes – tight-fitting shirts, caftans, trousers, and peaked felt caps decorated with precious stones for nobility, and boots.

What distinguishes the traditional costume of Surkhandarya?

The Surkhandarya region’s largest and most important part is Boisun. Its motley ethnic population was comprised of semi-nomadic Uzbek-Kungrats of Dashti Kipchak origin, the Yuz, Tajiks and Turkmens that had an impact on the costume characteristic features. Organically blending many artistic features of these nations, it contributed to the creation of bright, exuberant clothes that retained archaic traits longer than Uzbekistan’s other regions.

You will find more examples of national Uzbek clothes in the book-album "Traditional Uzbek costume on materials of museum and private collections of Uzbekistan (Part 2)" (volume XLIX) from the series "Cultural legacy of Uzbekistan in the world collections".
