Unique vintage handmade suzani 70s. Suzani is a common term for embroidered dowry pieces (coverlets for the bridal bed, but also for made to decorate beds, tables, walls) produced for hundreds of years by the women of Uzbekistan. According to local custom, a suzani was started every time a girl was born, in preparation for her dowry.

In the design appear a tree of life, a fanciful garden, stylised pomegranates symbolising abundance and fertility, brightly coloured tulips and carnations on a vast desert-like brown field everyday objects like the humble ewer the evil eye. Insignificant defects that could be seen in almost every embroidery were explained by the fear of the evil eye. Certain part of a pattern was not embroidered or embroidery was made with an insignificant defect so that viewers neither were too much astonished with its perfection nor too much praised an embroideresss skill. Place of Origin: Samarkand, Uzbekistan.
