The works of Uzbek masters are notable for their unique palette, grace, ornament and diversity. They attract special attention of the organizers, participants and guests of the forum. The keen interest was aroused by ceramics, which stand out with their original style and manufacturing technique, decorated with a blue and ultramarine pattern with wide horizontal borders. Visitors are attracted by Uzbek silk fabrics, ready-to-wear garments made from satin and adras.
