This gorgeous big red background Suzani has been hand made in Uzbekistan by village women. Hand embroidered in gorgeous floral (rose) patterns, this item has a deep red background and embroidery is in blue, yellow, white, turquoise and green.

The suzani is in a very good condition. Zoom in.

A beautiful suzani to hang on your wall, or to use as a throw or bed cover. It has been stitched in amazing patterns on a dark background. Great colour combination.

This suzani cannot be washed! But it doesn't need it. Drycleaning is possible - I have done it successfully with suzanis but the drycleaner always says 'at your own risk'.

Background:

This Suzani is a typical decoration for guest-rooms in Uzbekistan. The embroidery is made in threads in couch stitching technique. All the patterns of the embroidery symbolize prosperity and well-being. Some of these suzanis are made as wedding gifts.

Since an early age girls in the families of Central Asia have been taught the mastery of embroidering in order to follow the tradition to embroider their own wedding dowry. While embroidering of Suzani women express their creativeness using their skills keeping the traditions and customs of the national applied art.

In every Uzbek house there is a room for guests called "mehmonhona". Usually traditional mehmonhona is decorated with suzani. By the character of images, ways of implementation and color of suzani, as well as other types of the embroideries, suzani have their brightly expressed features in each region of the republic.


Don't miss the opportunity to own such beautiful embroidery.

HISTORY:

This oriental suzani is a genuine sample of the skill and quality of Tadjik handmade embroidery. Draped over your bed, wall or couch, these quilts bring eastern mystique to your home.

The name of these exquisite silk mural embroideries comes from Persian "sozan" which means "a needle" in Farsi. These large embroidered dowry textiles of Turkic groups are so named because of the many hundreds of hours of needlework required to produce them. This one is from Uzbekistan, where Uzbeks and Tadjiks share similar textile traditions with the Turkmen and other neighboring peoples in Central Asia.
