Khiva Silk Workshops
No trip to Khiva is complete without a visit to our workshops. Many visitors have emailed us on their return home to say that the workshop tour was a highlight of their visit to Uzbekistan. The best time to see the workshops in action is during the week, from 9am to 6pm, although some staff also work on Sundays during the tourist season. From April to October (and at other times by appointment) an English speaking guide is present to give you a free tour.
From the Ota Darvaza (main tourist gate) follow the main street. Pass the Kalta Minor and the music madrassah and then turn right. 30 metres on your left is the carpet workshop. To get to the suzanni centre, go through the archway at the end of the carpet workshop street and turn right, following the signs.
