Uzbekistan Wall hanging from Samarkand, this beautiful Suzani is hand embroidered using cotton thread on cotton material embroidered in the Basma Stitch. This striking design is of eight vibrant red rosette motifs surrounded by dramatic black leaf shapes.
Suzanis were traditionally created by Uzbek women to decorate their homes and for their daughters dowries. Wall hangings, bed covers and prayer mats, take many, many hours of painstaking work to produce the finest designs. These Uzbek textiles are highly prized for their beauty and fine needlework.
