Suzani comes from the Persian word for "needle, " and the word refers to embroidered hangings or fabric coverings, generally a meter and a half wide (4-5') but sometimes much more. The birthplace of suzani is in what is now Uzbekistan, the area along the Silk Roads that interconnected the cultures of Europe, Turkey and China with the Muslim world. Islam came to this area in the eighth century, and over time splendid cities arose there: among them Bukhara, Samarkand, Shakhrisabz and Khiva.
Central Asia has always been a land of textiles. The lives of nomads and settled peoples alike have always been hard, and the landscape is often bleak, but women have long decorated every object they could-prayer rugs, saddlecloths, cradle covers, mirror cases, yurt bands, tent flaps, salt bags and gift wraps-with weaving, embroidery and applique in wool, silk, cotton or felt. This item is a fine Uzbek Silk handmade embroidery - Suzani from Bukhara, Uzbekistan. The foundation of handmade embroidery is mixed silk cotton adras fabric. This suzani made by needle.
The richness of the pure silk threads reverberate with the spirit of artistry and craftsmanship of artisans. Measurements: Width: 158 cm = 62.2 inches Height: 175 cm = 68.9 inches.
