This beautiful piece of antique fabric would make a stunning wall hanging. It measures 94" X 64" and we have had it for years, but what we dont have is a wall big enough to accommodate it. It is a Bukhara Susani and was made around 1900. It would have been used as a tent lining by the nomadic society of Turkestan. The area was Bukhara which is now Uzbekistan. So Bukhara is where its from and Susani is derived from the Persian word Susan which means Needle. In ancient times the women of the family would each embroider a panel then the panels would be sewn together and you might notice that they dont quite match (bit like mismatched wallpaper) It is embroidered silk on a rough cotton back. This is a beautiful example of an ancient craft albeit in a rather worn condition. If you want an original statement piece maybe this one is for you.. Peace Love and Ice Cream..
