An expression of Uzbek and Uyghur culture

For more than 1,000 years traditional craftsmen have been making Ikat Adras (also named as Adras or Atlas) in Central Asia.

  • Between the early nineteenth century and the beginning of the Soviet period, there was an extraordinary flowering of the art of Ikat textile weaving in Central Asia.
  • Inspired by the shapes of flowers, leaves and fruits, the people weave beautiful patterns.
  • Adras is, as a rule, a mix of silk and cotton, while silk is only used in Atlas. 

SiRo makes use of Adras from Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.
