Bukhara is an ancient city in the central Asian country of Uzbekistan. It was a prominent stop on the Silk Road trade route between the East and the West, and a major medieval center for Islamic theology and culture.

Bukhara prints are visible in the Islamic architecture, garments and also in day-to-day life. Here is how we made one of our Bukhara prints:

This is how we transferred the pattern on to the fabric. We've used 100% pure silk fabric to make this.
