This is a vintage suzani from Tashkent in Uzbekistan. The boucle style machine embroidery is very intricate and accurate. Silk threads used to produce this suzani stand out nicely on the lush cotton velvet base.

The item is in a great condition despite its age (1950s -1960s) as it was probably stored away and never been exposed to the elements. Please note that I can sell this suzani by the yard so please contact me if you are interested.

Beautiful handmade embroideries from Uzbekistan – suzani. Back in the day there was a tradition in Uzbek homes according to which young girls in the family prepared embroidered panels for their dowry. From early age girls were taught the art of handmade embroidery by their mothers and grandmothers. Suzanis were not made for the purpose of selling in those days – they were prepared by women inside a family to impress future husband and his family, to be given as a present, and of course to decorate houses, especially on the wedding day. There is an interesting tradition in suzanis creation– to leave some part of the embroidery unfinished. This was made on purpose so that weddings go on in the family and happiness would never end.
