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

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 traditions. 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 examples of an age-old tradition which catch our attention with their mystery and beauty.
