These three handsome wool pillow covers were woven by hand in the remote area of Chirokchi in the Kashkadarya Region of Uzbekistan, Central Asia. Made for the local market, the covers follow a design handed down for generations. They are as thick and tightly woven as flat-weave rugs, and most likely will last for generations. There was hope among the women home weavers of Chirokchi back in the mid 1990s that their weaving could be developed into export items but, as far as we know, their dream has not yet been realized. We are selling these three as a set, and we have as well two additional large floor pillow covers in the same design. They have never been used and all are in perfect condition. Dimensions of the two larger pillows: length 30" (76 cm), width 16" (41 cm). Dimensions for the smaller pillow: length 15" (38 cm), width 14" (36 cm).
