Improvisations Of Colouful Felt

In the period of the Revival of the New Era of the Powerful State in our country, great attention is paid to the development of national culture and the enrichment and popularisation of the rich cultural heritage of the Turkmen people in the country and the world. Work is also underway to include new national values in the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, including the Art of Turkmen mat felting. This ancient craft, which has become an art in the hands of Turkmen craftswomen, is popular in our country and today finds a new application in everyday life. A well-known expert in national costume and carpet weaving, ethnographer Ajap Bayriyeva is working on a new project “Felt in the modern design of jewellery and accessories”. In her works, she interprets issues of the preservation, development and rethinking of national traditions in felting that are important for contemporary art: clothes and fashionable ethno accessories made of felt, which are becoming more and more popular among the female population with every passing year.

At the exhibition, the visitor will involuntarily stop in front of her canvases, admiring the perfection of painting and the brightness of the master’s unfading colours. The main theme of Ye. Adamova’s works was Turkmenistan and its people, simple and sincere people are the characters of the paintings At the Bedside of a Wounded Son, At Leisure, All the Same, I Will Study!, Happiness, Nobility to Be Yourself and many others. The feat of Turkmen women who donated tonnes of family heirlooms made of silver to the Defence Fund in the name of Victory in the Great Patriotic War will live for centuries. On this topic, the national artist Yevgeniya Adamova created the textbook painting Turkmen Women for the Motherland, immortalising the feat of our workers.

A Gift to the Museum is a Gift to Descendants

A solemn conference entitled “Mähir siňen nepislik” was held at the Centre for Public Organisations in the capital.

Promising Sector of the Economy

The textile industry, being one of the most dynamically developing sectors of the country’s economy, has a powerful production infrastructure and raw material base. And it is not accidental that in the strategy of the diversification and modernisation of the economy, carried out on the initiative of the esteemed President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, this industry occupies a leading place. Currently, Turkmenistan is at a stage of stable economic growth and at a qualitatively new phase of socioeconomic development, one of the goals of which is the entry of our country into the world economic community on the terms of a full member. To achieve this goal, the textile industry is one of the most promising sectors of the national economy.

If you analyse the priorities of the consumption of the population, then the textile industry is in the second place immediately after food products, which undoubtedly indicates its exceptional importance.

Keshde – an Artistic Embroidery

For hundreds of years, Turkmen craftswomen have been conquering the hearts of ethnic art connoisseurs with artistic embroidery. This is evidenced by the rich museum collections of folk clothing with unique specimens of embroidery, the variety of styles of which is fascinating. The history of this decorative and applied art goes back to the antiquity and is closely intertwined with the culture of the Turkmen people. The embroiderers’ works reflect the way of life, traditions, customs and reverent attitude to the world of nature, and all this was recreated in combination with a flight of creative imagination and professional techniques. Stitch by stitch, the dexterous hands of embroiderers continue to interpret traditional patterns in a modern way and bring fresh ideas to ancient art. Turkmen embroidery is special in that it is diverse and covers “in its own way” tahya and decorates women’s dresses and scarves, men’s dressing gowns and children’s clothes with graceful patterns. The ornament of each motif is unlimitable, created with silk threads and blends harmoniously with neighbouring patterns – this is how the canvas of the ornament, in which an embroiderer reveals her rich imagination, skill and talent, is formed. In old times, this decoration of clothes spotlighted the social and family status of the owner, marital status and partly age, not only served for bea

In April 2022, the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov issued the Resolution approving the State Programme for the preservation, protection, study and attraction of tourists to national historical and cultural heritage sites for 2022–2028.

Pattern Embroidered for Happiness

National embroidery, being a part of the decorative and applied arts of the Turkmen people, which has its roots in ancient times, is an original and peculiar phenomenon. Like the famous Turkmen carpets, it has not only been preserved in its original form, but has also been developed in the works of modern skilled needlewomen. Of course, handmade embroidery has a certain intrinsic value, the presence of its creator, her individuality and spirituality are always felt in it. It contains a kind of message in which the mood, thoughts and feelings of the craftswoman are reflected. The articles embroidered by Turkmen needlewomen can be compared with fine arts, which are part of visual communication, a reflection of reality, an expression of something meaningful and exciting. The ethnic history, the mystical sacredness of the sign-symbolic letter, addressed, ultimately, not only to the contemporaries, but also to future generations, is reflected in the Turkmen national embroidery. Our talented grandmothers and great-grandmothers were engaged in needlework, weaving carpets and rugs, making felt mats, knitting and weaving various amulets – “alaja”, “jähek”, “aldymgaç”. Their golden hands did not know fatigue, their creativity is worthy of surprise, and their work is admirable! Putting a piece of their soul into every item, they have been creating unique products for centuries: whether it

Restorer is a Vocation

From time immemorial, the Turkmen land has been known as one of the centres of scientific knowledge and culture, and therefore, the heritage that has survived to this day arouses fascination with its uniqueness and large scale. Today, the interest in the study of manuscripts created and stored in Turkmenistan is growing in many countries of the world, which causes special pride. President Serdar Berdimuhamedov notes, “It is known that the ultimate task set before the educational sector is to bring up the well-educated younger generation with a broad outlook and devoted to the Motherland, the people and the great values of their ancestors. Through education, we are therefore transforming our cultural and spiritual life, comprehensively strengthening the position of our independent state in the world and building our great future with a solid foundation… on the interests of people, national and universal values and on humane traditions.” The opening of the Faculty of Reconstruction and Restoration of the National Heritage at the State Institute of Culture was a significant event, especially for us, professional restorers, because it is very important to bring up worthy successors of masters of their craft, so that the ancient writings continue to live in the future.
