A long and dazzling suzani to hang around your wall, or in your yurt if you have one.
Gorgeous. 15 feet x 2 ft. Nice orange trim.

Good condition although there are a few tiny holes and one mark - See pic 4 - it may dryclean out. But these are not too visible when it is hung up. The embroidered mark of the maker is also shown in one corner.1981. See last pic. The price reflects these things.

Amazing patterns in this Zardevor (a kind of freize wall hanging). Hand embroidered onto a deep rose cotton fabric background. Made in Uzbekistan by village women using their skill and imagination to create a unique item.

Stitched in amazing patterns on a rose pink background. Pink, red, green, white, yellow, blue. Folds will fall out. You can iron on the back with a cool iron using a cloth both sides. Do not use a steam iron!

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

HISTORY:

This oriental tapestry/Samarkand Suzani is a genuine sample of the skill and quality of Uzbek handmade embroidery. Draped over your bed, wall or couch, these embroideries bring eastern mystique to your home. They are used to decorate high walls in the big houses of prosperous Uzbek families. The foundation of the handmade embroidery is a cotton fabric.

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. Suzani designs and colors vary quite a bit from one locale to another, and the city of origin often is apparent at a glance to someone from the region.

Uzbek Silk handmade suzanis give a great insight into the old culture and tradition of this land. Such works of art were prepared and used for ceremonial events like weddings, fittings for horses and horsemen and the general embellishment of reception areas. Traditionally this embroidery work began at the birth of a daughter and continued, with the help of family and friends, until the bride's dowry was complete. The patterns of Suzanis are an expression of women's mood and fantasies; but most of all, Suzanis are the last examples of an age-old tradition full of mystery and beauty.
