Vintage Hand Embroidery Table Cover, Uzbek Silk & Cotton Wall Hanging

About the Item

Suzani, a Central Asian term for a specific type of needlework, is also the broader name for the hugely popular decorative pieces of textile that feature this needlework in vivid colors with bold, expressive floral and botanical designs, natural materials and superior craftsmanship. The fascinating fine silk embroideries from Uzbekistan are perfect examples of Suzanis. Suzanis are embroidered with soft, glossy silk thread on hand-loomed narrow cotton panels, that are then sewn together to create a large surface. Their design, motifs and techniques vary depending on the region they come from. Chain, satin and buttonhole stitches are frequently used. The resulting look is a timeless one that delights the senses. A wide range of Suzani-style embroidered textiles were traditionally made by Uzbek women to be used as wall hangings, bed covers, screens, wrapping cloths, table covers and prayer mats in their homes and their children’s future homes after marriage. Today, a Suzani can be as versatile as you’d like it to be. With its soft, natural texture, it can be used and enjoyed in many ways as a wall hanging, bed cover, sofa spread, table cover, curtain and screen etc..It is a great decorative item that will bring a pop of color as well as a sense of elegance and sophistication to your home and can easily be blended with a variety of interior decor styles. Measures: 4.6x6.8 Ft.

  • Pair of Framed Japanese Embroidery Art Portraits
    Located in Atlanta, GA
    Artistically framed for display in a slight shadow frame with non-reflective pixie glass, these pair of embroidery art panels from Japan are dated circa 1910-1930s, end of Meiji to early Taisho period.
