DESCRIPTION: A vibrant Suzani coverlet, finely embroidered with silk threads on a cream-colored cotton ground. Suzani (a word meaning “needlework”) is a type of embroidered tribal textile made in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and other Central Asian countries. These coverlets are traditionally made by Central Asian brides for their dowry and presented to the groom on the wedding day.

This vintage suzani was acquired in Turkey from an Uzbek family and displays traditional design motifs such as sun and moon disks, flowers, leaves, vines and pomegranates. Excellent condition; no damage or stains. DIMENSIONS: 84.5” x 60.5”
