Antique Uzbek Red-ground Suzani / 7'x7'6"/215x230cm


Antique Uzbek Red-ground Suzani / 7'x7'6"/215x230cm


Originally a hanging for the home, this antique red-ground suzani has chain-stitch in a fine hand with florals in purples, blues, yellows, white and black. A light touch with so many rich and meaningful details.

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 Originally made for a newly-married couple's household by the bride and her relatives, and filled with motifs for protection, happiness, and more, they are now fabulous for a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.
