Silk rainbow of keteni

This year, 2,100 tons of silkworm cocoons have been produced in Turkmenistan - a valuable raw material for one of the leading branches of the domestic agricultural industry, which has a long history and traditions. Since ancient times, the Turkmen people have been engaged in silkworm breeding and made clothes of silk, decorated with silk embroidery. Clothes made of natural silk, which are warm in winter and cool in summer, were highly valued. Silk threads were also used in carpet weaving to manufacture especially delicate and elegant products. Silk imparted colorful tints to ancient carpet designs, transforming carpets into the magnificent specimens of fine art. The possibilities of modern production make it possible to produce fabrics of various density and texture from silk yarn - from thin chiffon and silk organza to dense taffeta and silk brocade. However, the most famous fabric among the Turkmen people has been the silk homespun fabric of keteni for many centuries. Due to its strength and brightness, it has always been highly valued and in great demand. The specimens of ancient silk fabrics made in the ancient Turkmen city of Merv are kept at  the famous museums of Egypt, Great Britain and the USA.  A characteristic feature of keteni are the golden stripes that frame the edges of the fabric and remain on the front side of the product, emphasizing its constructive

Paintings as a gift

The State Museum of the State Cultural Centre of Turkmenistan is the place where the largest collection of valuable artefacts that reveal the rich cultural heritage of the country, its diversity of flora and fauna is kept.

Anatoly Grigoriyevich became interested in painting back in his school years and attended one of the creative centres of Ashgabat. He was taught an art of painting and selection of colour shades by the Honoured Artist of Turkmenistan Ivan Illarionovich Ilyin. The teacher noted the capabilities of the young student, who was distinguished by his artistic handwriting and special vision of nature and considered that his paintings were worthy of representing Turkmenistan at the All-Union competition among schoolchildren and was not mistaken with the selection – seven paintings took the first place. It was in 1950.

Monument constructed from words

Words from the heart book and poem of our Arkadag called “Turkmen Alabay”: Our ancestor regarded the smell of new born child, fresh bread and start of Novruz equal with the smell of Heaven. I think that the smell of the recently published book of our Arkadag also applies to this statement. As I was reading the book of our President and thought about the smell of new published book. Those feelings, for some reason, reminded me of the moments when I took part in the opening ceremony of alabay dog statue in Ashgabat capital city in 2018. This book is like masterpiece made from words. Contains valuable information about alabay dogs. Aren’t the words only thing that comes from centuries? As mentioned in book alabay is loyal friend of our people that comes from centuries. There wasn’t any book written about “Turkmen Alabay” dogs except book of our Arkadag. This word – is word that Turkmen should introduce to the world! This word – is word that Turkmen leader should share with world! This Word is as new as bread that just emerged from the tamdyr, and as ancient as a thousand-year history of the Turkmen alabay! If we consider the book as a parable, where a person was surrounded by different creatures from the very beginning of the path, and the dogs showed the greatest solidarity to him, it seems like a unique look at the entire path of the human race in this world. At the same tim
