Package Itinerary

See and experience the labour, love and history woven into Turkmenistan's multicoloured handicrafts. The traditions of exceptional weaving techniques, outstanding wood carving and fabulous jewellery making have been passed on from generation to generation for centuries and, in their functional beauty, reflect the traditional nomadic ways of life of the people inhabiting today's Turkmenistan. It is incredible to watch a young girl creating embroidery purely by intuition, identifying her family and tribe's traditions.

Watch the carpet knitter spin knots on a loom keeping continuous tribal ornament and colour through the densest knitting. You will get to know the everyday life of one of the most hospitable people in the world, whose simplicity and immediate trust reminds one of days long ago past. Not all living conditions you may encounter during your trip will seem close to what is considered important and desirable in the west. Nevertheless - it should be understood that status and luxury have a much less significant role to the highly traditional people in the country - people care for their family's well-being, small events and a simple conversation that give them all the happiness in the world.
