Vintage embroidery section of an Uzbekistani saye gosha, or V-shaped household decoration.  Arms are 32 inches long each and 4.5 inches wide.  These handmade pieces usually consist of two components - an embroidered band and crocheted tassels along the bottom edge.  This older piece is very long and would make a beautiful base for a costume belt.  

Like all the older tribal textile pieces, these are in used condition and there may be frays, missing beading, unwrapped cording, or other small flaws.  This piece is missing one tassel.  

The Lakhai are a nomadic tribe of Uzbekistan, northern Afghanistan and Tajikistan. They are known for their brightly colored geometric embroideries. These textiles are highly individualized, made up of abstract designs chosen by the women who made them. Some of these abstractions are sourced from the animal world, though they are expressive rather than representational. Motifs that can be described as scorpions, spiders, snakes, birds of prey and rams’ horns were commonly used, but the individual embroiderer had the freedom to alter these shapes and create her own composition as she saw fit.
