Suzani, hand embroidered from Uzbekistan


The term suzani is from the Persian and essentially means needlework. Initially suzanis were made for one’s own private use, to decorate walls and beds, or serve as a curtain, tablecloth or prayer rug. Suzanis were also standard items in the trousseau of every city and countrywoman. Suzanis of the late Soviet era must be viewed: they were created by artisanal kolkhozes or individually, at home, to commemorate special events and holidays. Suzanis, Central Asian embroidered covers and wall hangings, for the most part, are decorated with oriental patterns and stylized floral motifs
