We had an awesome day yesterday at the Westgarth Fete. What a community, drinking their way through nearly 120 litres of Silk Road and French Kiss helping us to bring in the $$’s for the primary school. 👊 Massive thanks and shout out to all those who helped, we’ll definitely see you next year @wgfete

Scrolling through all the shots from the first leg of this roadtrip, Iran keeps bringing back the best memories. This was a small village on the pretty Persian Gulf island of Qeshm. While it was more than hot enough for us there early April, for the residents to survive the blistering heat of summer, most houses have historically been equipped with these towers called badgirs, or windcatchers, which do exactly that, catch the wind and direct it downwards into the houses to create natural ventilation and cooling of the interior. Ingeniously simple and effective. 💨
Meanwhile in Amsterdam, we’ve been granted two out of the three visas needed to continue this roadtrip. One more to go and we’re off again! #caravanistan #thesilkroadtravelguide #thesilkroad #silkroad #centralasia #iran
Back to Bukhara, an old favorite, after many years away. Bukhara has changed some, and certainly so have I, but above all still towers the massive Kalon #Minaret
as a reminder that this was once among the greatest cities of the #SilkRoad
Sadly I didn’t see any camels during my stay in Turkestan this past summer, so these sculptures are the best I can offer as a stand in. Regardless, they seemed to be an obligatory photo backdrop for everyone visiting Khoja Ahmed Yasawi’s Mausoleum nearby. #kazakhstan #turkestan #visitsouthkz #silkroad #sufi
READY TO ROLL...more sample packs going out today filled with beautiful samples of our hand dyed and handwoven ikat. All hand loomed by skilled master weavers in Uzbekistan using centuries old techniques. The strength and the vibrant colors of the ikat are down to the silk used which is soft, very strong and takes colours beautifully. Silk from silk worms 🐛 that have been feeding off the Mulberry trees in eastern Uzbekistan for centuries #silkroad #historyisalive #artisanheaven #colorlove
Just some of the common food of the Hui and Uyghur people from China's Xinjiang Autonomous Region.
Delicious, hearty, spicy, comfort food, also great for groups.
