Leather. In Tajikistan is widely developed the production of leather souvenirs. Pictures of leather and keychains with printed pattern, national footwear, including slippers: all this can attract the interest of tourists. Therefore, on Tajikistan markets leather products are very popular. Some of them even meet the requirements of fashion, so do not neglect these souvenirs and get them for yourself and friends.

Clay products. Kitchen utensils made in specific national motives are not only beautiful but also durable.
When making a choice pay attention to large dishes, vases, plates, statuettesjugs, bowls, teapots. Do not forget to ask the seller, whether it is possible to eat from these items or they are only souvenirs. Usually in other countries you can see on the dishes a sign, if it is not intended for food, but in Tajikistan such dishes are not always marked. However, you should look yourself: tableware, decorated too bright, is a priori not intended for food. But a more concise design indicates that this is a practical utensil.

Statuettes from Tajikistan, can be made of wood, clay and other materials. The most popular are clay figurines. They are made for a variety of needs and sizes: from both the tiniest, and to cumbersome. Of course, for the road it is better to buy a compact statuettes or fridge magnets.
