Uzbek Suzani Runner—Farid
"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.
This runner is a very unique and unusual piece. These intricate designs have been hand-embroidered using wool onto kilim. This would make the most incredible table runner, wall hanging or throw.
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.
Due to the vintage nature of the fabric there are imperfections in places and some loose threads, but these add character and history.
