Nurata Suzani

Suzanis are dowery embroidered pieces that are formed by several panels that are embroidered by the female members of the bride’s family and then are stitched together lengthwise to form large panels that can be used as bedcovers, wallhanging or any other domestic purpose.

Suzanis can be traced to their exact origins according to their decorating style. This one is from Nurata, based on the floral bushes in all four corners pointing towards the central medallion and style of embroidery. While the design is typical of suzanis from Nurata, the mostly-empty field is unusual.
