Uzbek Vintage Silk Suzani on a Silk Ground from Tajikistan

215 x 135 cm

£420.00

This beautiful example of a Silk Suzani makes a glorious addition to a room as a throw over a bed or sofa, alternatively it can be hung on the wall.

The vintage Suzani has a look typical of mid-twentieth-century Tajik embroideries - bold, flat patterns in a limited palette usually on black. The distinctive white border pattern is said to symbolise a snake, which was thought to protect against evil spirits. It is bordered by an intricately machine-embroidered black cotton trim. These Tajik Suzanis were usually used as wall hangings.
