Rare Vintage “Nim Suzani” Embroidered Textile Panel

$2,100

About

A rare, vintage “Nim Suzani” hand-embroidered textile panel, in a “flower-and-wave” pattern, from Uzbekistan, circa 1920s, mounted on a forest-green mat, behind glass, and presented in a silvered wooden frame. The ground is a lightweight cotton-and-silk blend, known as adras, which was colored using natural dye resulting in this rare shade of mellow green. The flowers and waves were created using a chain stitch throughout with a naturally dyed embroidery thread made of silk and perhaps a little bit of cotton for added strength. This example has a handstitched seam down the center likely indicating two women worked on this piece. In the Persian language, “Nim” translates to “small pattern” and “Suzani” means “needlework.” Uzbek women, working alone, with other women, or in guilds, produced elaborate embroidered tapestries, bed linens, table linens, and prayer mats for their households and their daughters’ dowries. The Suzani pattern was almost lost during the Russian occupation of central Asia, but, when the soviet era ended Westerners became more familiar with these fine Uzbek pieces and new markets for these old forms and techniques developed. This textile would add a handcrafted touch of warmth and color to a den or living room, library, or kitchen beautifully!
