Been hanging suzani's lately, weather has been great for indoor activities!
March we have had 9" of rain!
This one is silk on cotton and it's from Samarkand.
It's called melon sprouts
It sports the sun disks which date to pre-Islamic.
This suzani is silk on cotton adras
And it has pommegranite tree motif with bird, butterfly,
And fish. The bright blue in suzani isn't showing in this light.
The rug is Qashgai
My favorite from Shiraz region
Natural madder and indigo with some chemical dyes
Amazing talent working with new colors this way.
This one is Shiraz
Motifs are birds
Dyes are natural
