Vintage Kyrghz Suzani Wallhanging / 3'10"x6'11"/211x119cm


Lovely Kyrghz suzani with traditional tight chain-stitch hand embroidery all over the surface in a precise yet artful floral-geometric design. Green and pinks with golden rings are set against the black ground. Originally hung behind a bed as a wallhanging headboard, this piece would be lovely even today in the bedroom, or used as a textile for upholstery (sturdy cotton) or dec pillows.

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 Originally made for a newly-married couple's household by the bride and her relatives, they are now fabulous for a variety of uses and design applications.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