Uzbek Skull­caps Aired in South Korea

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - CULTURE AND ARTS -

In Tashkent, a col­or­ful ex­hi­bi­tion Uzbek Dup­pi­lari took place re­cently. Its par­tic­i­pants, jour­nal­ists of the South Korean tele­vi­sion and ra­dio com­pany KBS (Korean Broad­cast­ing Sys­tem) were quite im­pressed by the Uzbek skull­caps.

Korean jour­nal­ists have al­ready filmed and shown a video on the KBS-1 tele­vi­sion chan­nel, which de­scribes the his­tory of Uzbek male and fe­male head­dresses. Par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion is paid to ex­plain­ing to Korean au­di­ences the va­ri­eties of hand em­broi­dery in var­i­ous re­gions and cities of Uzbek­istan - Tashkent, Kokand, Margi­lan, Ferghana, Chust, Surkhandarya, Kashkadarya, Bukhara and Sa­markand. The state broad­caster KBS was es­tab­lished in 1961. The head­quar­ters is in Seoul, the cap­i­tal of the coun­try. Has the largest net­work of tele­vi­sion and ra­dio net­works in the coun­try. The con­tent is tar­geted to both lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional au­di­ences.

Cor­re­spon­dents of KBS-1 re­port that the shape and ap­pear­ance of the skull­caps were sig­nif­i­cantly in­flu­enced by both the nat­u­ral con­di­tions of a par­tic­u­lar area and the na­tional com­po­si­tion of the pop­u­la­tion, as well as the tra­di­tions and level of de­vel­op­ment of art and cul­ture.

The plot notes that in the past the skull­cap had the ap­pear­ance of a domed cap that was worn like a tur­ban. Later, it changed and ac­quired a pointed up­ward, con­i­cal, round and square shape. It is sewed with gold threads from cotton, silk, satin or vel­vet. For ex­am­ple, in the south­ern re­gions of Uzbek­istan, for mak­ing skull­caps, silk was used, and in the east­ern part - cotton.

This kind of art lives in the peo­ple and at the present time, its tra­di­tions are care­fully passed down from gen­er­a­tion to gen­er­a­tion, jour­nal­ists of the Korean tele­vi­sion chan­nel state.

The re­port also re­flects the cre­ative work of art masters Ibro­him Va­likhod­jaev, Dil­shod Nazarov, Dil­shod Esh­ma­tov, Shuhrat Ab­du­ma­likov and Alisher Um­r­zokov, who were rep­re­sented at the ex­hi­bi­tion Uzbek Dup­pi­lari.
