This St. Frank vintage piece was created in Uzbekistan and consists of dense silk embroidery on a cotton-silk blend backing, not visible through the elaborate stitching. Suzani embroidery, which is made with a tambour hook, is a classic Central Asian textile. The design portrays a majestic male elephant with husks, elaborately decorated. This particular piece is double sided with an opening at the elephant's feet, as the piece was previously used as a decorative teakettle covering.
