Rishtan's ceramics workshops
For security reasons, tourists are advised against travelling to the region: seek information before your trip. Rishtan's ceramics workshops are an essential part of craft production in the Fergana Valley. Cobalt blue adorns the dishes of the entire country, and the patterns it traces have evoked the cotton flower since the Soviet era. In the years following independence, workshops have looked to rediscover older motifs, be they geometrical or plant-inspired, in accordance with Muslim tradition.
