Product Information

Vintage Afghan Suzani Embroidery - a Central Asian textile from Afghanistan. This needlepoint has been embroidered by hand and measures approximately 35x41cm (1.1½ x 1.4ft) excluding any fringes - this one is quite unusual, it is like a pouch with an opening at the top. It has fabulous colours, a lovely patterns fabric backing and is quite a rigid texture so great for the wall. Depending on the size, these Suzani textiles make great table covers, bed covers, or can be used over the back of a sofa or as a wall hanging - they are a fabulous splash of colour and make lovely decorations for people’s homes. 

Suzani means needlepoint in Farsi and the background fabric of these textiles is usually either cotton, velvet, silk or satin with silk embroidery. Minor tears or marks can sometimes be present which is normal for these vintage older pieces (some of them have old Soviet fabric backing - see images). All of our Suzanis are original older pieces ranging from approximately 20 to 70 years. Often pen is used as a marker for layout before embroidery starts and occasionally one can see some of the original pen outline which is normal for original pieces. Find out more about Suzanis here.
