This vintage St. Frank piece was created in Uzbekistan and consist of silk embroidery on a luxe silk backing. Suzani embroidery, which is made with a tambour hook, is a classic Central Asian textile characterized by flowers and meandering vines. Though Uzbek stitched, the motif presented here is Turkish - a tree of life. Suzani tree of life designs represent three spheres: the roots spring from the underworld, the trunk rises through the terrestrial world, and the branches reach the heavens. These textiles are traditionally used as wall hangings or as a woman's marriage dowry, as the flower designs are symbolic of fertility and fruitfulness. The suzani's decorative embroidery is also thought to possess a protective element.
