This vintage Bolinpush suzani has been hand made in the Tajik area of Uzbekistan . Stitched in gorgeous patterns, this item is an example of embroidery which takes many hours. It is a firmer piece, edged with a strong fabric.

This bolinpush is in a very good condition for its age. Hang it on your wall, or use as a throw or on a bed. I can see it on the wall in a bedroom or as a centre piece in a lounge.

This Suzani is a typical decoration for guest-rooms in Tajikistan. All the patterns of the embroidery symbolize prosperity and well-being.

The suzani is in a good condition - no holes or flaws. Backed all around the edges.

The embroidery of the Tajik people. Each piece of embroidery holds a deeply symbolic meaning expressed by shapes such as scorpions, snakes, spiders and insects from the dark, fear inspiring underground world and rams horns from the hills and mountains. Clear, legible lines, dynamic rich colors on a red and less often grey or black surface, strong contrasts, abstract and frequently asymmetric compositions, set the works by Tajik people a part. Embroidery was a woman's work and her skills as a keeper of the hearth and home were held in great esteem. Patterns on Tajik suzani often reflect heart feelings of women, their vision of the nature. They created pictures of animals, birds and fish alongside with vegetal motives. Dwellings are decorated with bright embroidery; floors are covered with carpets, which are woven by the skilled women

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

MORE HISTORY:

This oriental 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.
