This beautiful Nim Suzani (Nim means 'half size Suzani'), can look amazing as a wall hanging, a throw for a bed or sofa or even as a luxurious tablecloth. This Suzani is finished with an edging of a traditional hand-made braid.
As the seat of the ruling emir (monarch) of the Khanate, nineteenth-century Bukhara was the Paris of Central Asia. The emir's embroidery workshop influenced the Suzani style of the surrounding regions, including Kermina, Shakhrisabz and Samarkand.
The Bukhara school of embroidery has its own signature characteristics, the chain stitch being one of its most distinctive features. A close look at a Suzani made by the craftswomen of Bukhara will reveal plenty of small details that bring the whole composition together beautifully. Modern embroidery from Bukhara often includes sprouts with flowers spread all over the surface of the fabric and round rosettes. Bukhara Suzanis often have a wide outer border with large flora medallions.
