If you are a dab hand with a needle and love unusual and unique drapery, you can’t go far wrong with our beautiful range of vintage embroideries from Central Asia. For the basis of unique clothing, wall hangings, throws or simple cushions, check out the variety and uniqueness of this original collection. Each one is different in size, design and colour scheme. This region has for centuries produced exquisite regional art works, including rugs, pottery and embroidery. This particular form of embroidery is an integral part of daily life and is rich, sumptuous and amazingly diverse. Each tells a story and takes a regional artisan medium into relevant and modern design for everyday use. These Uzbek suzanis are embroidered in a mainly natural colour palette, although occasionally can be found with bursts of colour or on vibrant fabric, and consist of bold hand-embroidered floral designs. In a bleak desert landscape, oasis and courtyard gardens were especially cherished, and so plants, blossoms and vines of all types appear in the needlework, as well as occasional fish and birds. Old traditional abstracted forms may also appear: palmettes, rosettes, and pomegranates. A huge amount of time and effort goes in to making these beautiful, decorative and sort after pieces of art. Smaller pieces can make cushion fronts, or patchwork several together for a throw that will have guests drooling with envy.
Please note that these are vintage pieces and some may be a little tatty around the edges, but each one oozes character and an individual history.
