Black and White Suzani Tapestry
As the popularity of Central Asian textiles increased, so has the frenzy to collect these unique pieces of traditional textile art, with collectors snatching up prized samples of Suzani at flea markets, antique markets in the former Soviet Union and throughout central Asia. The suzani is one such perfect story of an enduring craft. The story of the craft has forever bound into every stitch and motif the hopes, aspirations, dreams and fears of its makers who lived in what was perhaps the harshest landscape in the world. Black and White Suzani Tapestry is a truly remarkable artwork with thousands of tiny hand stitches joining together to make a beautiful and intricate pattern. Especially, yellow and orange colors make more intensive.
The term Suzani means “needlework”–specifically, the exquisite cotton thread embroidery panels made by Uzbek women. Traditionally this embroidery work began at the birth of a daughter and continued, with the help of family and friends, until the bride’s dowry was complete. As the Soviet era ended and Westerners discovered Central Asian folk arts, the price of antique suzanis skyrocketed. Now maharani arts brings you recent and contemporary suzanis, affordably priced. Our suzanis are genuine folk art, stitched by hand in the traditional manner. Once used as coverlets for the bridal bed, these gorgeous textiles can bring color and texture to any environ. Suzani make delightful wall hangings, bedspreads, furniture throws, pillows, or even tablecloths.
