Antique Suzani Textile, Country of Origin: Uzbekistan, Circa: 1900– Suzani textiles are specific styles of antique embroidered textiles produced in Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. They are embroidered and then multiple pieces are stitched together. The stitches used are primarily buttonhole, chain and stain. Usually the motifs used are the botah motif and other flowers such as tulips, wild hyacinths and pomegranate blossoms. Suzani derives from the Persian word for needle and to the coverings and embroidered hangings. These embroideries and textiles remain popular with collectors of antique Oriental rugs, who prize such pieces for their rich cultural authenticity.
