About

Antique embroidered floral silk Suzani textile fragment. In shades of orange, natural, blue, red, yellow and green. Ideal to make a pillow. Size: 16" H x 20.5" W. Suzanis were traditionally made by Central Asian brides as part of their dowry, and were presented to the groom on the wedding day. These hand-embroidered vintage Suzanis are infused with the character that only comes from everyday use. Perhaps created by a bride-to-be to show her devotion to her betrothed and then in lean times bartered away to a traveling merchant for money or household necessities pulled from the depths of his donkey cart. The story of each of these Suzanis is as rich as their colors, as intricate as the designs that cover their surfaces. This vintage piece from Uzbequistan was handmade in the traditional Suzani embroidery technique and consists of delicate silk embroideries on a cotton backing. Suzani embroidery, which is made with a tambour hook, is a Classic Central Asian textile characterized by flowers and meandering vines….. These artisanal, textured textiles are traditionally used as wall hangings or as a woman’s marriage dowry. The Suzani’s decorative embroidery is also thought to possess a protective element.
