Central Asia’s famous Silk Road is the source of the dynamic, highly abstracted embroideries of the Uzbek peoples. Detailed, full-color photographs of the nearly 100 works in the Jack A. and Aviva Robinson Collection at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts provide unparalleled access to the style and technique for which the embroideries of the Lakai and Kungrat nomads and the refined textiles of the city of Sharisabs are renowned.

History, anthropology, and mythic tales blend with women’s textile magic in this first, fascinating publication illuminating a brilliant artistic tradition.
