Uzbek Suzani—Aila

$695.00

"Suzani", meaning ‘needlework’, is synonymous with the glorious embroideries of Uzbekistan, in Central Asia. In the nineteenth century, Uzbek women produced fabulous silk on silk hand-embroidered hangings, bed covers, curtains and table clothes for their households and their daughters' dowries.

Today, old Suzanis are highly prized as collectable items; they look wonderful loosely framed as a wall-hanging, but can equally be used as a table-cloth or bed-spread, or simply as a beautiful piece of embroidery to be admired & treasured.

This beautiful Suzani is hand embroidered in silk and features a traditional Ottoman design. Due to the vintage nature of the fabric there are imperfections in places and some loose threads, but these add character and history.
