-silk foundation
-silk embroideries

These intricate and lovingly-made textiles can be used in so many ways to add texture, romance, and delight to any room.
The Great Embroideries of Bukhara -extraordinary works of art provide an explosion of colour and form. The effect that they create is of an extremely powerful and graphic artistic image. They are amongst the most exciting and beautiful Central Asian embroideries known, and it is not surprising that they have become known as the 'Great Embroideries of Bukhara'.

"Suzani" means needlework, but to most collectors, the word has a more specific meaning: "suzani" is synonymous with the glorious embroideries of Uzbekistan, in Central Asia. In recent years, we've witnessed a remarkable revival of this old traditional art form. Now gorgeous contemporary embroideries decorate not only Uzbek homes, but also grace European and American households. Fortunately, we now have access to beautiful contemporary textiles that are a natural outgrowth of the old traditions--at very reasonable prices. As with any textile art, a range of quality appears in the new suzanis currently on the market. The pieces are produced under widely varying circumstances--both in cities and villages, both in workshops and in homes. Much of this craft work centers in the Tashkent, Nurata, Samarkand, Bukhara and Shahrisabz areas. The best new pieces are truly lovely, with inspired designing, excellent materials, and fine craftsmanship.
Traditional stitche is used in a majority of the pieces: primarily basma stitch. An unbelievable amount of time and care goes into the making of each piece.
With the basma stitch, long strands are first laid across the fabric surface. Then these are secured with short couching stitches that are normally aligned diagonally. This stitch is especially effective for covering sizeable areas. The appearance can vary in character: some of the stitching is smooth, fine, regular and flat; on other examples, the stitched areas assume an almost three-dimensional character and texture, which shows off the lustrous silks to their full advantage. In any case, this technique makes large, generous, dramatic motifs possible. Sensitive artisans match the scale of the stitching perfectly to the designs in their luxurious pieces.

After nearly a century of synthetic dye use in Central Asia, the best workshops in Uzbekistan have now returned to traditional natural dyes for the most glorious colors. The dye materials used include madder, cochineal, indigo, walnut, pomegranate, and sumak, along with assorted others. On lustrous silks, the results are deep, rich, mellow, and glowing.
