Embroideries

EMBROIDERIES FROM HILLTRIBES IN VIETNAM

All these embroideries were purchased from hill tribe women in the Sapa Valley in Viet Nam. Anyone who is interested in the hill tribes will get a more authentic experience in the Sapa Valley in Viet Nam than they will in Thailand as it is not such a popular tourist destination. I have many good pictures of these people wearing or offering their goods.

This small incredibility intricate embroidery is the same type of embroidery as is used on the clothes some of the hill tribe women wear in the Sapa Valley. The colours are much more muted and more orange and beige than the pink it appears to be in the picture.

EMBROIDERIES FROM UZBEKISTAN

Uzbekistan embroideries or suzanis are very beautiful and have bold patterns which are more like rug patterns than pretty European embroideries. Traditionally they were used to decorate yurts, but now are used as wall hangings to decorate people’s homes or restaurants. Most of these embroideries were purchased in cities on The Silk Road in Uzbekistan: Khiva, Bukara, Samarkand.

NOTE: The ikat [hand carved wooden] holders are not included in the price.
