Afghan Kuchi Beaded Embroidery Panel

This colorful large beaded vintage panel was handcrafted in the later 1900's by Kuchi Tribal Jewelry artisans. Panels like these were pinned or sewn onto dresses, coats, and even headbands for adding colorful accents.

The brightly beaded designs are favorites among the tribes of Central Asia. Fringes of blue beads and pink charm-beads were strategically placed to ward off the evil eye. 

Mirrors fringed with tufts and barley-bead tassels flank each side, catching the light and shimming with movement. A floral Russian-cotton lining has been added, making it easy to affix the panel wherever desired and lending support.

The designs of stylized birds, rams horns, and mountain triangles on this beaded panel are said to protect the wearer from harm and offer abundance. Each end has a round phul (flower) fringed with yellow beads with more colorfully beaded rams horns in the center.
