Silk Suzani

"Suzani" means needlework, but to most collectors, the word has a more specific meaning: "Silk suzani" is synonymous with the glorious embroideries of Uzbekistan, in Central Asia.

In recent years, we've witnessed a remarkable revival of this old traditional art form. In the nineteenth century, Uzbek women produced fabulous embroidered hangings, bed covers, wrapping cloths, table covers, and prayer mats for their households and their daughters' dowries.

As the Soviet Era ended and Westerners became more familiar with the finest old Uzbek pieces, prices for antique examples escalated wildly.

A revival of the old forms and techniques was a natural development as new markets opened. Now gorgeous contemporary embroideries decorate not only Uzbek homes, but also grace European and American households, while talented and industrious Uzbek women have a welcome new source of family income. Fortunately, we now have access to beautiful contemporary textiles that are a natural outgrowth of the old traditions--at very reasonable prices.
