This textile is called a "Saye Gosha" or "Segusha", made by Uzbeks in Afghanistan.

This textile is made of three distinct parts: The dusty rose satin fabric with floral embroidery, a woven border added on along one corner, and the twisted fringe added on to that.

The embroidery thread looks and feels like silk, but aged cotton can also take on that nice sheen. The embroidery is quite dense and in good shape. The twisted fringe has tin sequins attached at the ends, adding a little bling. If you look closely to the photo, you will see how the bottom two pieces have been added on. Truly a collectible and gorgeous piece!

Dimensions: 38" square
Metric: 96.5 cm


Suzani textiles go all out for impact in color, size and their recognizable floral flair. Appropriately, the word suzani means needle, but is used to refer to the larger tapestries.

Similar textiles are also made by the Turkman. (See this discussion on TurkoTek, the must-see site for tribal textiles: http://www.turkotek.com/salon_00108/s108t4.htm)

As stated there, similar V-shaped pieces are used to decorate rolls or of quilts and bedding that would be stacked against the wall of a yurt. Another site said that these are actually sewn on to the back corner of a quilt so that each family member can find their own bedding easily. Makes sense to me!
