Ak-Saray Palace is one of the most magnificent monuments of the Timurids of the XIV - XV centuries, erected in the city of Kesh (Shakhrisabz). Amir Timur (Tamerlan, Tamerlane) directed the construction to himself. After Timur had already built a great number of palaces and fortresses in the capital of his land, in Samarkand, he wanted to beautify his home town Shakhrisabz with a palace, which has not been seen in all his empire yet. He called the most skilled architects and craftsmen from all over his possessions. Also, about 50,000 slaves took part in this large-scale construction. Ak-Saray Palace was planned as the most grandiose of all Timur's constructions.

Silk Production in Uzbekistan

✨ Khan-Atlas Royal Silk and other Natural Silk Fabrics.
💃 Silk clothes have always been popular in Uzbekistan. In the Emirate of Bukhara only people of the highest status could afford silk clothes. Silk was very expensive at that time because it was brought from China by caravans. Later the silk production technology was also developed in Central Asia. However, this did not make the material affordable, since a large number of silkworms were required to make just a small piece of fabric.
📝 How is silk produced? Types and properties of silk fabrics.
