Matluba Aminova

Matluba Aminova, a resident of Penjikent, has been embroidering suzanis, ruijo, bolinpush and other goods since she was a girl. She learned from her mother and believes she is happy, because she is doing a job she likes.
Matluba passes her knowledge and skills to her numerous apprentices. She sells her products in the local market, as well as presenting for various exhibitions and fairs organized on national holidays.
Speaking about the peculiarities of local embroidery, Matluba says: “In our region the suzani embroidering technique is different from other regions, as we embroider flower ornaments in big, merging circles. Each suzani has two large circles characterizing the Sun and the Moon”.
Matluba hopes that today’s youth will learn handicraft and preserve the cultural legacy of our people, as culture is what makes every nation proud.
