Vintage Uzbek Silk Suzani / 66"x83"/ 168x212cm


Gorgeous and vibrant Nurata suzani on vivid yellow ground. The silk embroidery in burgundy and deep lavender and black form flowering plants, an interior garden.

This piece was originally a ruidjo, or wedding bedcover, and formed an important part of the woman's textile dowry. 

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 Originally made for a newly-married couple's household by the bride and her relatives, they are now fabulous for a variety of uses and design applications.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