The Surkhandarya (or Surxondaryo modern spelling) region is the southernmost region of Uzbekistan. Uzbekistan is home to many ornate arts including embroidery, beading and highly detailed jewelry. Decorated textiles adorn most homes and can include lovely saye gosha and suzani pieces with intricate embroidery.
