Vintage Uzbek Cotton Suzani / 56"x78"/ 142x198cm
Bright and festive, this red-ground cotton-on-cotton Uzbek suzani bursts with life. Concentric circles of daisies and other motifs form the five central circles, while cotton buds dance around the border.
This piece was originally perhaps a wedding bedcover, or a wall hanging.
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 Originally made for a newly-married couple's household by the bride and her relatives, they are now fabulous for a variety of uses and design applications.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.
