Our silk thread is 100% natural and comes from silkworms grown locally in Bukhara
region. The growers spin the thread, which we purchase in our local bazaar.
The thread is initially white in color. During each of the four seasons we use
different plants to create the colors necessary for excellent quality Persian
Here's a few examples of the plants and fruits that we use:
Winter - walnuts and pomegranate and roots of various plants, preserved cherries, grapes
and other summer fruits.
Spring - leaves of walnut trees, almond trees, mulberries.
Summer - onions (which give three colors - yellow, gold and reddish gold), black grapes,
black currents, saffron.
Fall - yellow melons, wheat, clover, bayarishnik (please translate), rayan (uzbek)
