Antique Suzani Textile

$21,000Asking Price

About

‘Suzani’ means needlework and these embroideries are some of the most characteristic forms of textile art from Central Asia. This piece was stitched in one of the oasis towns of Uzbekistan during the first half of the nineteeth century. Bold flowers are drawn using copious silk floss within a grid. Though this is a very coherent overall design, there is great variation and individuation of each flower drawn. Such idiosyncrasies integrated within a classic Central Asian floral composition is part of what makes this example a top end suzani.
