Uzbek Saye Gosha Textile Segusha Central Asian Embroidery
Vintage, hand-embroidered, Uzbek saya (saye) gosha - sometimes also called "segusha". The symbols on this textile may refer to important events in the life of the person who crafted it, or they may be solely for decoration. This piece has an intricate border made of small stitches. 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 was most likely once part of a larger item so there are stray threads visible where it was once sewn together. There are some loose stitches where the embroidery connects to the fringe - shown in photo. This is a vintage item. Measurements: The length of each section is 30" to the center. The textile is 5" tall - the crocheted section is 4" tall - a total of 9" together. The last photo is a view of the back.
