Bukharan embroiderers were famous for their elaborate gold embroidery called “zarduzi”. Traditionally, the master embroiderers were only men, as it was thought that a woman’s hands and breath would tarnish the gold.
These boots were made for a young child to wear on special occasions.
Only one side of each boot is embroidered.
