Uzbek Skullcaps Aired in South Korea
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.
