This super vintage suzani has been hand made in Uzbekistan by village women. Stitched in gorgeous patterns, this item is an example of dazzling embroidery which takes many hours.

This suzani is in a very good condition with a black cotton background. Lacy fringing along one side. 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 Uzbekistan. All the patterns of the embroidery symbolize prosperity and well-being.

The suzani is in a very good condition - no holes or flaws.

Dwellings are decorated with bright embroidery; floors are covered with carpets, which are woven by the skilled women of Boysun. Alongside the walls there are carved chests, which from the old times have been used as wardrobes; on the tables there are painted ceramic dishes made on the potter's wheel. Dress and shoes of women are decorated with embroidered patterns; local Boysun craftsmen make beautiful jewelry. Up to the present time inhabitants of Boysun make use of different tools manufactured by local blacksmiths. Every family carefully keeps and passes over from generation to generation the culture of house-keeping, ancient rituals, traditions and customs filled with the sacred sense and originating from pre-Islamic pagan culture. Ritual songs and dances, the folklore of narrators - akyns, who keep local legends and traditions, live their natural life.

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.
