"Suzani" (meaning ‘needlework’), is synonymous with the glorious embroideries of Uzbekistan, in Central Asia. In the nineteenth century, Uzbek women produced fabulous silk on silk hand-embroidered hangings, bed covers, curtains and table clothes for their households and their daughters' dowries.
Today, old Suzanis are highly prized as collectable items; they look wonderful loosely framed as a wall-hanging, but can equally be used as a table-cloth or bed-spread, or simply as a beautiful piece of embroidery to be admired & treasured.
This piece is hand embroidered in silk. It is a great size for either a bedspread or tablecloth.
