When we talk about the textile art of the East, the image of glorious colors, wonderful textures, interesting patterns and amazing beauty comes to our eyes. Textile art in general, carpet making in particular, has fascinated mankind for thousands of years[1]. An important decoration of the interior design of the house, the carpet has been an integral part of human civilization for centuries. This textile wonder has evolved from simple woven covers to intricate designs, offering comfort, warmth and aesthetic appeal. With its rich history, diverse production techniques and cultural significance, the carpet remains an enduring element of interior design. Its evolution from ancient handwoven rugs to modern industrial floor coverings demonstrates the innovation and flexibility of this textile wonder.

This article describes the development of the carpet industry in Central Asia and the special place and development of the carpet industry of Uzbekistan.
