Vintage Uzbek Cotton Suzani / 5'1"x6'6" / 155x200cm

Vintage Uzbek Cotton Suzani / 5'1"x6'6" / 155x200cm


Delicate embroidery on this suzani, a sweet respite from some of the more heavily embroidered pieces. The flower motifs on this piece have been very diligently reduced to their most fundamental circles and petals. A lighter piece, with a lovely hand.

Suzani - from the Persian word for "needle" - is the term used for a range of hand-embroidered covers and hangings from Uzbekistan. Originally made for a newly-married couple's household by the bride and her relatives, they are now fabulous for a variety of uses and design applications.

These pieces were made as part of the dowry and as such were prized possessions. But they have age, which is part of their extreme beauty. Our pieces are offered as the best of their categories in terms of artistry and condition. All are sold as-is.
