Khalima Gulomova is from Istaravshan, Northern Tajikistan. She embroiders suzani and ruijo (bed spreads) since young age “I learned this craft from my mother. Women in our mahalla are usually engaged in one handicraft or another. Now I am teaching my daughter the art of embroidery”, says Khalima. Khalima sells her products in the local market, also sewing to orders. When embroidering, she uses such techniques as “sidigarduzi” and “dastaduzi”.
According to Khalima, it is hard to find good quality materials these days. Another important problem faced by artisans making suzanis is that the demand for this product is dwindling. This is caused by the absence of established channels for selling suzanis, as well as the tradition to pass existing suzanis from one generation to another as a mandatory attribute, which traditional national celebrations cannot do without. So many people use suzanis remaining from their mothers and grandmothers. But despite these problems, this woman intends to continue her favorite business, which she enjoys as much as her customers do.
