Uzbek Saya Saye Gosha Textile Segusha Central Asian Embroidery
Vintage, hand-embroidered, Uzbek saya (saye) gosha - sometimes also called "segusha". The flowers on this textile may refer to important events in the life of the person who crafted it, or they may be solely for decoration. The edges are unfinished most likely due to this being removed from a larger item. There are some frayed threads on the ric rac trim. The yarn fringe is also all made by hand, including being hand-dyed. I think it is wool, but am not sure. The original use of this type of textile to adorn the home, but the shape is perfect for using it as an amazing ATS or fusion hip scarf. This is a vintage item. Measurements: The length of each section is 26.5" to the center. The textile is 4" tall - the crocheted section is 6" tall - a total of 10" together. The last photo is a view of the back.
