Suzani bedspread uzbek, blue red suzani wall hanging, hand embroidered tapestry
Size: 57.5 x 86.6 (inch)/146.0x220.0(cm). Suzani is a general term for embroidered dowry items (bedspreads for the wedding bed, as well as for decorating beds, tables, and walls) produced for hundreds of years by women in Uzbekistan. According to local custom, suzani was started every time a girl was born, preparing for her dowry. The fabric panels were hand-woven, and each female member of the family was engaged in embroidery of a separate cloth with handmade silk thread, made in the form of a chain, satin and buttonhole. As soon as the panels were finished, they were sewn together and passed into marriage. With so many women involved in its creation, suzani has become a form of artistic expression, a way of communicating with the outside world. The embroidery technique used in a suzani is the bigiz (hook). Base fabric is handmade, so there may be inaccuracies.
