If it is said that a paradise is to be seen in this world, then the paradise of this world is Samarkand. ~ 'Ata-Malik Juvaini
The Samarkand collection takes its inspiration from the city of Samarkand which was at the heart of the Silk Route through Central Asia. The Silk Route was an ancient network of roads initially for trade but quickly became the beacon of cultural and artistic exchange between the West and the East.
The city became the beneficiary of a convergence of myriad world cultures throughout centuries. As a result, the city of Samarkand evolved to blend and encapsulate the magnificent art, architecture, textile trends from the Western hemisphere to Eastern hemisphere. This collection pays homage to those brilliant eras when Samarkand city became the heart and soul of the world.
