Vintage Black Cotton Suzani / 5'6"x7'7"/ 168x232cm

Vintage Black Cotton Suzani / 5'6"x7'7"/ 168x232cm


Lovely and precise cotton-ground suzani with great contrast and visual appeal. The full piece has finely embroidered flowering plants growing from the corners and the sides towards a central medallion. A lovely piece in great condition, it would make a great bedcover or wallhanging.

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 Originally made for a newly-married couple's household by the bride and her relatives, they are now fabulous for a variety of uses and design applications.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.

Fine, elegantly-drawn cotton embroidery on cotton ground.
