Traditional art and craft is the voice of ancestors, because they reflected the way of life of people who lived centuries ago. If people preserve traditional arts and crafts, carrying them through the ages - this indicates a strong internal connection with the past, respect and esteem for their culture and history. Respect and esteem of ancestors is an original inherent feature of the peoples of the East and Uzbekistan hasn’t become an exception in this sense.

So, from generation to generation, arts and crafts are passed from a father to a son, from a master to a learner. Education in the East is learning from heart to heart, in a direct communication. Master ("Usta") being in a close contact with the student gradually conveys the secrets of his craft. Having devoted years to the practice of technical performance, the learner eventually opens up a qualitatively new meaning in what he does - he is the bearer and continuer of tradition.
