Retraced comprehensively in its domestic, stage-by-stage development against the background of artistic achievements and losses, the decorative embroidery in Samarkand is just a branch of the needlework art of Central Asia. With so much in common suzani produced in various regions of Uzbekistan had its own local distinctions and, combination of local types and styles. Differences between these local types have not been accounted for by ethnic identity of their creators: it is impossible to distinguish between Uzbek or Tajik embroideries.
In this respect, the art of suzani is universal, for it demonstrated ancient ties between Tajiks and Uzbek-Sarts, including ethnic roots as well. It would be appropriate to remind that contributing to the ethno-genesis of the both nations were some common components. In turn, similar life and economic conditions favored the consolidation and development of identical features in the cultures of Uzbeks-Sarts and Tajiks that had their effect on the traditional applied art, particularly, the art of decorative embroidery.
Suzani manufacturing takes much time of craftman. First, embroidery suzani decorated with geometric motifs on a plain fabric. Then hand-dyed. Warp threads are bound and dyed at least six times. Embroidery stitches applied with a needlework or tambour hook. Often, embroidery motifs enter a design through the embroiderer’s or craftsman’s wish to incorporate a unique striking image from their own lives. In this way, motifs deploy powers of sympathetic magic. Thus, suzani resembles geometricized, vaguely floral pattern drawn upon a repertoire of motifs from the dynamic embroideries of the nomadic Uzbek. Embroideries are unique in style, their primitive, dynamic, asymmetrical motifs seeming to float on the background fabric.
