Uzbekistan national embroidery suzane
Suzane is a decorative panel made by hand, embroidered with cotton or silk threads, executed in home-made white fabric or colored cotton, less often silk.
Traditions of making suzane in Uzbek and Tajik arts and crafts date back to ancient times, as evidenced by ancient pieces of cloth from archaeological excavations. In popular traditions, it is common to present suzane as a gift for a wedding.
In the old days, it was considered mandatory for young guests to buy suzane as a wedding gift. Suzane is hand-embroidered, following traditional compositions and color combinations, so each ornament is unique.
