This pale pink Uzbek suzani fabric panel is hand embroidered by skilled and talented artisans in Uzbekistan, featuring a purple and blue floral grid pattern.
The name suzani comes from the Persian word ‘suzan’ or ‘needle’. These panels were traditionally made in Central Asian by brides' families as part of their dowry, and were presented to the groom on the wedding day.
Floral motifs are sketched onto the fabric prior to being hand embroidered stitch by stitch, making each panel truly unique. Some pen marks may be visible and remain on the final piece. These panels are often divided between many women in their village or families to embroider, and are then sewn together.
