OLD UZBEK HANDMADE EMBROIDERY - SAMARKAND SUZANI

The term «suzani» («needle», «sewing by a needle») origins from Pharsi language «suzan» - "needle". Suzani, suzane, is the decoratively embroidered panel either on a white or color cotton fabric or silk, widespread among the people of Tajikistan and Uzbekistan and used as an element of interior decoration. Suzani was a part of bride’s obligatory dowry. Traditionally the embroidery started at a birth of the daughter and continued till the bride’s dowry had not been completely collected. However, household use of such embroideries had also the ritual character connected with ancient beliefs in national consciousness: embroideries as a whole, and their separate patterns in people’s representation had magic character, served for a young pair as a talisman against the evil spirits that could harm. The key Suzani designs are nests, flowers, images of birds, ancient magic symbols.
