This vintage St. Frank piece was created in Uzbekistan and consists of delicate silk embroidery on a silk-cotton blend ikat backing. Embroidery over a woven ikat textile makes this piece particularly unique. Suzani embroidery, which is made with a tambour hook, is a classic Central Asian textile characterized by flowers and meandering vines. Typical of suzani, complex floral motifs are repeated in a regular grid pattern. Flower designs are symbolic of fertility and fruitfulness. These textiles are traditionally used as wall hangings or as a woman's marriage dowry. The suzani's decorative embroidery is also thought to possess a protective element.

The embroidered textile is carefully applied to a flax linen substrate, which provides a border between the textile and frame. This product is available in our lucite frame. Our signature gold St. Frank plate is featured in the bottom right-hand corner of each piece. Framed dimensions of this piece are 40" W x 46.5" H.
