In the exposition hall of the State Museum of the State Cultural Center of Turkmenistan, has been launched an exhibition dedicated to the Turkmen national embroidery, entitled "Grace soaked in the patterns of embroiderers".

The exhibits on display testify to the unique needlework of Turkmen embroiderers, who turn any product with a needle and silk thread into flowering gardens and meadows. The craftsmanship of Turkmen embroidery passed down from generation to generation is a national pride.

The main exhibit of the exhibition is the head cape (kurte), which is widely used in the national dress of women. Depending on age, social status and any celebration, it is customary for a woman to wear a certain type of cape.

It is noteworthy that the style of the cape does not change, it is characterized by false narrow sleeves, intended not for practical use, but for decoration.

According to experts, on average, it takes from five months to a year to create a head cape, and this is if the embroiderer is released from household chores.

The characteristic color scheme of the cape consists of four colors of threads: red, yellow, black and white. Patterns are applied tightly, leaving almost no empty space on the product. The artistic value of embroidery is determined by the harmony of color, the delicate taste of the craftswoman and the exacting accuracy of the work.

The exhibition also presents children's clothing and household items. Among the latter is a unique cherry-colored silk bedspread embroidered with the finest patterns of Turkmen embroidery.

Notable embroiderers of Turkmenistan were invited to the opening of the exhibition, who shared the secrets of craftsmanship in their speeches. Largely due to their talent, the art of Turkmen embroidery continues to develop successfully.
