Large vintage Uzbek Suzani Embroidery from Samarkand - a Central Asian textile from Uzbekistan. This needlepoint has been embroidered by hand and measures approximately 204x280cm (6.8 x 9.2ft) - we love the red cotton background together with the traditional Zoroastrian sun symbols throughout in a multitude of colours, the green in particular is a very beautiful tone. 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 peoples 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 Central Asian fabric backing - see images). All of our Uzbekistan 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.
