Central Asian Tuski’iz (bed hanging)

reference:  6909

This embroidered central Asian tuski’iz is part of a bedding set.

The embroidery in a multitude of strong colours is worked in chain stitch on off-black cotton twill which is backed with a light-coloured cotton fabric. The field with its floral designs is enclosed on three sides by a red cotton border with curvilinear patterns and a band of rickrack, with loops for hanging still intact on the top border. It was acquired in Almaty, Kazakhstan, in the year 2000. The textile is a cheerful example of central Asian folk art.

It is in very good condition.
