Antique Uzbek Suzani Ruidjo / 4'8"x7'10"/143x239cm


Rich and densely embroidered antique, collectible ruidjo suzani in silk on cotton.

Sunburst flowers in red-pink are encircled by dark melon vines, all highlighted against the rich dark yellow-marigold cotton ground. Originally made to be a ruidjo, or wedding blanket, this suzani would have been a prized possession.

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 Originally made for a newly-married couple's household by the bride and her relatives, they are now fabulous for a variety of uses and design applications.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

This piece has fine, tight silk embroidery on cotton ground.
