SilkWay is based in Uzbekistan, and sells beautiful ikat fabrics produced in Margilan, Uzbekistan, as well as other ikat products and Uzbek handicrafts. HoonArts is proud to offer a selection of ikat fabrics and handmade ikat and hand-embroidered pillow covers from SilkWay. SilkWay works with many different ikat artisans in Margilan, in order to offer the widest selection of colors and patterns. Because of the time-consuming work involved in producing hand dyed, hand woven ikats, one craftsman can release only a few types of fabric per month. Each artisan has ten or more assistants, mainly consisting of relatives and close friends, in order to keep their patterns and dyeing and weaving techniques "in the family." These family secrets are passed down from generation to generation. If you would like to see other beautiful products offered by SilkWay, check out their shop on Etsy.com.
