Vintage Uzbek Saye Gosha Textile Segusha Central Asian Embroidery
Vintage, hand-embroidered, Uzbek saya (saye) gosha - sometimes also called "segusha". This piece is made from small, cross-stitch-like stitches. The pattern may hold particular importance to the maker, but I 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 29" to the center. The textile is 8" tall - the beaded fringe is 4" tall - a total of 8" together. The last photo is a view of the back.
