Large Vintage Turkmen Hand-Embroidered Collar

This intricately hand embroidered textile was sewn in the mid to later 1900's in Turkmenistan Central Asia. Turkmen women stitch these large ornate colors on their simple shift dresses for a splash of elegant color and tradition. 

The embroidered motifs are a showcase for the talents of the Turkmen women who create them, and frequently indicate tribal affiliations and ancient cultural symbols. 

The stitching styles are similar to those used on the famous Turkmen wedding Chirpy (Cherpy) cloaks. Machine stitching is applied only to provide extra support as in a quilt.

This is a large embroidered piece, with lots of details and beautiful handwork that is sure to make a great addition to any collection. 

Collars like this are so extraordinarily beautiful that I use one as artwork one framed on the wall. Hand wash recommended.
