The example of the hand-made Bokharan ikat texture used for blue pillow cover body pillowcase may illustrate the complexities of labor in the silk weaving trade. Bokhara is one of several in which weaving is a common occupation. Most people specialized in weaving silk fabrics such as ikat. Non-migrant, “Old Bokharans” who claim Uzbek descent are living in both Uzbek and Irani dominated neighborhoods and they weave both pure silk and half-silk ikat fabrics. There is also an abr-bandi or ikat-binding workshop for the production of ikat warps in a Tadjik neighborhood. In a very mixed neighborhood of mostly Tadjiks and Farsi that include many all-silk ikat weavers, there is a dyeing establishment that employed both Jewish and non-Jewish dyers.
It is apparent that not only silk weaving, but even such activities as half-silk and all-silk ikat production, is not limited to a single ethnic group. Weavers of Uzbek descent tend to produce cotton wefted half-silk fabrics. So did weavers who call themselves Tadjiks and “Old Bukharans” Irani and Farsi settlers are more likely to be the weavers of all-silk fabrics. While Jewish and Chala weavers make exceptionally light and fine silk kerchiefs and shawls.
