As I wrote earlier, not only silk cloth is made here, but silk carpets as well. Christina showed the room where the girls worked on suzanis and on silk carpets (photo 2: suzani work on the left, silk carpet on the right).

On photo 1 is the carpet, that was finished just recently (Christina held it up for a better view), and she said that it took 6 months to complete it. It was extremely soft and ah, I would have loved to buy one, but that would have overstrained my budget. Maybe next time ?

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
