Vintage Uzbek Cotton Suzani / 71.5 x 85" / 182x217cm
Fantastic orange ground vintage suzani. Great play with the blues in the embroidery and the orange ground, the suzani also has embroidery in rich green, yellow, and black. Floral designs with swirling vines between each motif.
This piece would be great as upholstery or window-treatment fabric, or used as a bed cover or pillow fabric.
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 Originally made for a newly-married couple's household by the bride and her relatives, they are now fabulous for a variety of uses and design applications.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.
