This St. Frank vintage piece was created in Uzbekistan and consists of delicate silk embroidery on a silk-cotton blend backing. Suzani embroidery, which is made with a tambour hook, is a classic Central Asian textile characterized by flowers and meandering vines. This two-paneled textile demonstrates a common craft approach. A specialist known as a chizmachi draws out the suzani pattern, then each fabric strip is given to an embroiderer, and finally the finished pieces are sewn back together. The result is a grand work created by several hands, producing charming irregularities and subtle mismatches that balance out the precision of the stitch. This piece reveals a pomegranate motif, a common element in suzani embroidery, representing fertility with its many seeds. The flower designs are also symbolic of fertility and fruitfulness. Suzani textiles are traditionally used as wall hangings or as a woman's marriage dowry. This decorative embroidery is also though to possess a protective element.

The embroidered textile is carefully applied to a linen substrate and bordered with a traditional linen-covered mat board. 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 46.5" W x 45" H.
