Decorative Uzbek Suzani Embroidery
Decorative Uzbek Suzani Embroidery is one such perfect story of an enduring craft that 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. In addition, the suzanies are rich in flower and vegetative motives, which transmit absolute beauty of the nature – these are pictures of trees, flowering bushes, various flowers: carnations, chrysanthemums and others. Their compositions symbolize the blossom of the nature and life on the earth. Ideal as a wall hanging or tablecloth, pillows and accessories, the originals of which are scarce. Especially, the black background gives the thread colors a distinctive glow! We offer the finest and most complete selection of contemporary and traditional suzani embroideries. Uzbek women created exquisitely embroidered suzanis in different shapes and patterns to decorate their homes, to cover their belongings and most significantly, to tell the story of their lives, from birth to that all important rite of passage, marriage.
