Uzbek­istan is fa­mous for pre­serv­ing the most an­cient species, tra­di­tions, meth­ods and schools of folk arts and crafts. The on­go­ing re­forms ex­pand the op­por­tu­ni­ties for the de­vel­op­ment of crafts­man­ship, pro­vide in­cen­tives for the rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the sphere, and fully support the types of hand­i­crafts handed down from gen­er­a­tion to gen­er­a­tion. Young peo­ple are trained in crafts based on the tra­di­tions of the men­tor-dis­ci­ple form of school.

In the Ferghana re­gion, spe­cial at­ten­tion is paid to im­prov­ing the well-be­ing of the pop­u­la­tion, en­sur­ing em­ploy­ment of young peo­ple, women and low-in­come fam­i­lies through the de­vel­op­ment of hand­i­crafts. An im­por­tant pol­icy doc­u­ment in this di­rec­tion is the Res­o­lu­tion of the Pres­i­dent of Uzbek­istan “On mea­sures for the fur­ther de­vel­op­ment of hand­i­crafts and com­pre­hen­sive support for ar­ti­sans”.

The re­gion is cur­rently home to more than 1,300 ar­ti­sans. In Margi­lan, Kokand, as well as Rish­tan dis­trict, their schools of hand­i­crafts have been formed. The es­tab­lish­ment of the Na­tional Cen­ter for the De­vel­op­ment of Ser­i­cul­ture and Home­work will un­doubt­edly con­trib­ute to the fur­ther de­vel­op­ment of hand­i­crafts.

“The cen­ter will work to support ar­ti­sans and home­work­ers who pro­duce silk goods, pro­vide jobs for women and dis­abled peo­ple, help young crafts­peo­ple, man­u­fac­ture ex­port-ori­ented fab­rics from lo­cal raw ma­te­ri­als,” said Ra­suljon Mirza­ahme­dov, head of the re­gional branch of the Hu­n­ar­mand As­so­ci­a­tion. “Cur­rently, there are seven work­shops in the cen­ter. Also, a gallery of na­tional hand­i­crafts and a hand­i­craft train­ing cen­ter are open.”

To­day, 400 women and young peo­ple from Margi­lan, Ferghana, Tash­lak and Rish­tan dis­tricts study se­crets of var­i­ous crafts here. This year, the cen­ter plans pro­duc­tion of goods for $ 14.5 mil­lion.

Crafts made in our coun­try en­joy great pop­u­lar­ity among tourists. The cen­ter will def­i­nitely take a spe­cial place in the ex­ten­sive pro­mo­tion of na­tional crafts­man­ship. Ar­riv­ing in Margi­lan, guests will have the op­por­tu­nity to visit work­shops and get ac­quainted with the pro­duc­tion process.
