The oldest cities in the Ferghana Valley – Margilan

One of the oldest cities in the Ferghana Valley - Margilan. From time immemorial, it is famous for its silk production. From ancient times, expensive fabrics were exported from here to Kashgar, Baghdad and even Greece.

Silkworming in Central Asia appeared 2000 years ago. Margilan craftsmen also preserved the ancient method of silk production. This factory is one of the largest enterprises producing unique fabrics. 1000 meters of silk are woven here per day. And not on automated equipment, but manually, on wooden machines.
