Suzani Vintage “ Purple Eureka”
- Uzbek Silk Handmade Suzanis give us an opportunity to have an insight into the old culture and traditions of this land. Such works of Art were prepared and used for ceremonial functions like wedding doweries, fittings for horsemen and their horses, and the general embellishment of reception rooms.
- Amazing Silk Satin Deep Purple foundation and floral design of incredible intricacy.
- Rather bold it would add such richness as a wall feature or coverlet. Great condition!
- It takes more than one year for an Uzbek woman to accomplish the decorating of a single piece and considering today's wages, this art work is destined for oblivion.
- Southern Suzanis are much closer to the traditional nomad designs of the Kyrgyz and Uzbek who in pre-Islamic times worshipped the sun, moon & stars.
